Hugely progressive for Mark Johnston; moved to Godolphin for the 2011 season and continued that progression, bridging the gap from handicaps to the top level with an impressive victory in the Group 1 Al Maktoum Challenge over 1m2f at Meydan (March 2012); ran a fine race to chase home his stable-companion Monterosso in the Group 1 Dubai World Cup later the same month; returned from a year off to run in the 2013 Dubai World Cup, but finished last
