THREAT, headline selection at Doncaster, obliged when landing the Pommery Champagne Stakes Group 2 over 7 furlongs.

“We were pleased with Threat, going into the race, and despite a 3lb penalty was always hopeful.

“It was a step up in trip. But Threat is an extremely good horse. One of the best two year olds around,” said trainer Richard Hannon jnr.

Threat, 6-5 favourite, beat Royal Crusade (9-4) under jockey Pat Dobbs: “Threat has tons of gears and is very talented – he’s just got those extra gears.

“He can quicken up and found the 7 furlongs trip to be no problem. A very good horse.”
