Prince Faisal's colt made an impressive winning start at Yarmouth, taking a maiden by two and a quarter lenghts.

This is a step up in grade but the son of Lope De Vega has worked well since and we hope he is up to making his mark in a race like this.

Roger said: "Belardo is a promising colt who always worked well at home before winning his maiden well at Yarmouth.

"This is a step up but I am confident that he can handle himself in this company."
