Having finished third on his first two starts this season, Imperial Sun appreciated the step up to a mile and a half for the first time at Wolverhampton on Tuesday. Racing off a mark of 77, Robert Havlin's partner was anchored in the rear early on before making his move rounding the hometurn. Leading over a furlong out, he only had to be nudged out to register and a four and a half lengths victory looking a well handicapped three year old in the process. The opposition may have had amounted to a great deal but the winner is a strong stayer who will have no trouble getting further. A son of Sea The Stars and a half-brother to St Leger winner Harbour Law, it would be no surprise to see him develop into a contender for something like the Melrose Stakes at York (21st August). A trip to Glorious Goodwood could be in the offing before then - there is a £50,000 0-105 three year old handicap over twelve furlongs on Wednesday 28th July. Featured in the Top 40 Prospects in Ahead On The Flat, the John and Thady Gosden trained colt is one to follow for the remainder of the campaign.
