One win from 14 starts masks the fact that Lancaster Bomber is a very smart performer.

As a two-year-old his efforts included second places in the Dewhurst (behind stablemate Churchillybfrazzxfb) and the Breeders’ Cup.

And in 2017, the son of War Front finished a close fourth in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas (again behind Churchill) before being beaten just a length by Barney Roy in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot (when he had Churchill behind).

His jockey Donnacha O’Brien said: “The lad ran well – he loved the ground.”

And Aidan O’Brien added: “He ran very well – that looked like it was his form. He ran a very solid race.”

Lancaster Bomber was unable to replicate that form on very testing ground in the Qatar Sussex Stakes, at Goodwood, or Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on QIPCO British Champions Day but, back on a faster surface, he beat all bar World Approval in the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Del Mar.
