The Frankel colt was an impressive winner of the Group 3 on only his second racecourse appearance.
Martyn Meade looks to have a genuine Guineas contender on his hands based on Eminent's powerful display in the Group 3 Craven Stakes at Newmarket. Sent of at 8/1, the son of Frankel stayed on well in the final furlong to take the mile contest by 1 3/4 lengths from Racing Post Trophy winner Rivet.
Bookies reacted to the performance by cutting the 3yo's odds from 33/1 into as short as 8/1 in places for May's Classic. The unbeaten colt is also entered in the Derby later in the season and is now as short as 12/1 from 33/1.
His trainer speaking after the race said: "My main thought at the moment would be for the Guineas because he does handle this track very well, but there is no doubt that he will get further. Today I was a bit worried about the pace because he needs to have some pace and when he was hitting the dip... I thought as soon as Jim asked him, I thought this horse is going to take a lot of beating now".
