SIR Michael Stoute could just have unearthed another gem to follow in the footsteps of so many great colts to have passed through his hands over the years at Freemason Lodge.
Which is why City Of Troy should not be missed in the totesport.com Royal Lodge Stakes, part of another vintage card at Newmarket where all of the six races are nearly unmissable.
Stoute tends to take a quiet approach with his two-year-olds to save them for the future, but he has given this son of Grand Lodge two races already and now pitches him into top company.
Having won tidily first time out at Newbury, he took in a conditions event at Doncaster recently, where he conceded first run to Art Deco.
But City Of Troy set off smartly in pursuit, catching his useful rival close home with the pair well clear.
He has potential in abundance, so must be kept an eye on here.
