Andrew Balding sent him down here as an apprentice in 2013/14 and he impressed all.
Now 22yo, he's been riding like a man inspired in the last 12 months in the U.K. Behind only R Moore and perhaps S de Sousa in these parts.
His wins in the last two G2 Celebration Miles at Goodwood are perfect examples of his endeavour, while his brilliant front running ride on Knight to Behold in the big race at Deauville last week was a gem.
And after breaking his UK G1 duck on Roaring Lion at Sandown last month, he's followed up immediately on the same horse in the G1 Juddmonte International and in the G1 Sussex Stakes on the estimable Lightning Spear.
Will be at the top of the tree for a long time.
We're likely to see him in Melbourne on the first Tuesday in November on Qatar Racing's Count Octave.
