Norfolk Stakes: The Lir Jet
Impressive on debut at Yarmouth; clocking big speed rating despite steady early gallop. Quickened away from a useful field in fine style (fastest closer by 0.38s).
The Lir Jet clocked on of the biggest two-year-old speed figures of the season at Yarmouth and can emulate his sire by winning the Norfolk Stakes.
Bred for speed, he’s got it in abundance. The Lir Jet clocked a good time that, with a hefty sectional upgrade because of the steady early gallop, gives him a speed-figure of 96. That’s usually good enough to win a Royal Ascot juvenile contest.
Qatar Racing obviously think so, as they bought him at the Ascot Breeze-Up and they can get an immediate return on that investment.
