Bohemian Flame

This son of Zoffany had a good two-year-old season, winning first time out before coming third in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown. He was then upped in grade for the Group 2 July Stakes where he finished 7th. His next run was in the valuable Weatherby's Hamiliton Stakes at Doncaster where he finished just outside the prize money. He had his first start in his 3yo campaign in the Shergar Cup at Ascot in August and this will set up nicely for the second half of the season.


Contango

Contango is by first season sire Casamento and out of Call Later a producer of three winners from three winners to date. He is in training with Andrew Balding but did not run as a two-year-old as he kept growing. However he proved well worth the wait when winning on debut in early June and followed this up to maintain his 100% record at Chester. He completed his hat-trick at Newmarket on 22nd July and is very exciting. His latest run was in the Shergar Cup Classic at Ascot where he just missed out on a four-timer, when second beaten half a length. His current rating is 92.


Cross My Mind

Cross My Mind is by the top class miler Cape Cross, a leading stallion being father to the great champions Golden Horn, Sea The Stars and super mare Ouija Board.

Her dam won at both two and three-years-old and has produced one winner from just one runner to date.

She is in training with Ralph Beckett, who has a magic touch with fillies and at the moment is well regarded by him. She is the type who should debut in the Autumn and should have a run or two this season which would all be a bonus for her three-year-old season.


Cuban Heel

Cuban Heel is from the first crop of the exciting young sire Havana Gold. He was bought at Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale and is in training with Clive Cox.

He made his debut at Newbury in June and on his next start was a promising second at Ascot. He looks to have a bright future and was third at Leicester in mid August. His opening handicap rating is 77.


General Marius

This is a strong looking son of Holy Roman Emperor who looks a real two-year-old. General Marius is in training in Newmarket by top handler Roger Varian. He made is debut in July, but was pretty clueless on his first day at school and was more effective next time out at Brighton when he was much more professional and looked the winner until swamped in the last 100 yards. He has been given an initial rating of 68 and was third on his nursery debut.


Gorham's Cave

Gorham's Cave has started life well at Roger Varian's and has done all that has been asked of him. He has not been fully wound up but moves very nicely up Warren Hill. Being a late foal and a bit backward he spent several months developing with Hetta Stevens at Robins Farm. He returned to Newmarket in early January 2017 and is pleasing Roger. He was 5th on his debut at Doncaster on 27th July, having been a bit keen early on. He should learn plenty for the experience and looks exciting next time out.


Lifeboat

Charlie Hills trains this very good looking son of Born To Sea, the half-brother to Galileo out of wonder broodmare Urban Sea. This colt is the most expensive of his sire's progeny sold at public auction in 2016.

This colts dam has already produced five winners from seven runners and hails from a famous Oppenheimer family.

He made is debut in a decent 6.5 furlong novice at Newbury in June where he was an eye catching 5th and was second on his second start, having led the whole way bar the final yards.


Magical Memory

A winner at two, three, four and five Magical Memory is a high class sprinter rated 112. This five-year-old son of Zebedee has now won eight races and some £503,182 of prize money for owners, which makes him KVT's highest ever earner. In 2016 he won two races, including the Duke Of York Stakes (Group 2) and the Abernant Stakes (Group 3) both under Frankie Dettori. He then came a very close 4th in the Diamond Jubilee (Group 1) at Royal Ascot. He has started this current campaign well with a good second in the Duke Of York and won at Haydock on his third start of the season, he then won the Hackwood Stakes (Group 3) at Newbury. He followed this up with a solid 4th in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest.


Percy Thrower

Percy Thrower, a gelded son of Sir Percy is a three-year-old in training with Charlie Hills. He has improved with each run in his 3yo season, and whilst not a world beater, he is begining to get his act together and hopefully we can find him a winnable race in the near future. He was third on his latest start at Bath over 1m 6f and a step up to 2 miles may be on the cards for his next start.


Royal Wave

William Knight, new to the KVT trainer roster in 2017, trains this great moving filly. By the top class sprinter Royal Applause and out of a three-time winning daughter of Galileo, Royal Wave looks a class act. William trains the winning half-brother Solar Flair so has a good handle on this family. William has started the 2017 season with a bang and likes what he has seen so far of this filly who made her debut in June. She will improve for this first run, where she was particularly green and will come on fitness wise. He second run was in horrible conditions at Glorious Goodwood and she hated the very soft ground. She will head to Salisbury in mid August for her next start.


The Big Short

The Big Short is a 3yo gelding in training with Charlie Hills. He finally got his head in front at Leicester in June under champion jockey Jim Crowley. He will probably stick to 5 furlongs now and we hope this this confidence booster may help unlock his full potential.


Tullius

A high-class gelding who is a Group 1 performer, a dual Group 2, Group 3 and multi Listed winning middle distance horse with a preference for cut in the ground, who is now a nine-year-old.

As a six-year-old Tullius was second in the William Hill Lincoln, won the Bet365 Mile (Group 2) and was a close fourth in the Group 1 QE11 Stakes.

Tullius maintained his form as a seven-year-old winning a Listed race over a mile at Doncaster, prior to being campaigned over 10 furlongs. Solid efforts in Group 3's at Sandown and Epsom were followed by a credible fifth in the Group 1 Eclipse Stakes and then a win in the Group 2 Sky Bet Stakes at York.

As an 8-year-old Tullius won the Diomed Stakes (Group 3) at Epsom and was second in the Foundation Stakes (Listed) on his latest start.

To date Tullius has won 11 races from 41 starts and amassed some £500,137 in prize money and has earned more prize money than any other KVT runner. Tullius has been retired following a season ending injury, but he is currently enjoying his rehab as we look to find an alternative career for him.


White Turf

White Turf is by Clodovil, the French 2,000 Guineas-winning son of Danehill. His dam, Holda, has produced three winners including Andrew Balding's Group 2 winning filly Blond Me.

Andrew Balding trains him and he is developing into a beautiful grey who moves effortlessly.
