The sound and vice-free Palmerston is offered for sale by North Yorkshire trainer Marjorie Fife.
A son of Oasis Dream, Palmerston showed promise as a two-year-old, before going on to win a pair of turf handicaps over a mile at three. He continued his progression as a four-year-old last season, winning another handicap at Beverley and progressing to a career-high mark of 82.
A slight dip in form at the tail end of last season has seen both his turf and AW marks drop to 77, which is three-pounds lower than his last winning mark. He looks attractively treated for the season ahead.
Palmerston also boasts an exceptional pedigree. His second dam is the Grp-1 Irish Oaks winner Margarula, whilst he is a half-brother to the Listed Galtres Stakes winner Martlet.
Trainer Marjorie Fife has enjoyed great success over the past few seasons and has made a strong start to the New Year. Palmerston is a horse with proven ability that is not overraced and he has plenty of years ahead of him.
