Description

Grey colt by Dark Angel / Making Eyes (Dansili). Purchased at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Yearling Sale for 135,000gns. This colt is out of the dual Listed winner Making Eyes whose half-brother Viewpoint has won eleven races. His third dam is a full-sister to G2 Royal Lodge Stakes winner Desert Secret.

Ascension broken his maiden on his second start in a 6f novice at Salisbury, winning under hands and heels by an easy 3 1/2 lengths. He had shown plenty of promise on debut over 7f at Newbury, but the drop back to 6f proved more to his liking and he looks an exciting horse for the future. He followed up with a pillar to post success at Newcastle, defying a penalty to win by a length and a half under Jack Mitchell. His first run in nursery company off a mark of 87 was a sound enough effort at Newmarket, just getting a little out of his ground in the dip before finishing well. 

Race Record: 4-2-0-0
