Al Kazeem primed for Arc raid after Eclipse triumph

The horse who has emerged as the discovery of the season continued his harvest of top prizes yesterday. Al Kazeem's decisive success in the Eclipse Stakes, his third in a row at Group 1 level, confirmed him as Britain's best middle-distance performer and a most credible candidate for the end-of-year showdown in the division, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. His purposeful progress up the rankings is now there in the formbook; his place in public affection has been slower to come but his charisma must surely now be acknowledged.
