Abreeze was a five-length winner of the Grass Widows Maiden at Sandown yesterday. Despite Frankie Dettori on board, the colt drifted in the betting from even money to 7-2.

The Italian had only to push out the colt once they had found racing room in the straight, emphatically beating the 5-4 favourite Dark Moondancer.

Tommy Albertrani, assistant trainer to Godolphin's Saeed bin Suroor, said the Danzig juvenile was only one of a number of useful two-year-olds soon to be unleashed on the racecourse by the stable.

He said: "Abreeze is big, game and has plenty of talent and a lot of scope. I would expect him to improve on this win." Abreeze received a 25-1 quote from Corals for next year's 2,000 Guineas.
