This six-year-old gelding clearly has ability and remains on a very attractive handicap mark. He is now being freshened up after a short break and will soon be ready for an all-weather campaign, promising plenty of fun days out throughout the autumn and winter months for his prospective owners.
A versatile individual, Quintus Cerialis won his maiden on the all-weather at Kempton by an impressive 11 lengths at the end of 2015 and has since gained several places in competitive handicaps.
In the most recent of these, a handicap at Leicester in July, he was most unlucky not to gain another victory when just touched off in the closing stages, having missed the break and losing about five lengths at the start.
His sire, Vale Of York, was an exceptional Gr1-winning juvenile for Godolphin who has made a fair start to his stallion career. His progeny to date include dual Gr3 winner Fontanelice, and the Hugo Palmer-trained Afandem, a winner of the Gr3 Prix d'Arenberg at Chantilly last year.
This gelding's dam, Red Fox, has also produced Regimental, a four-time winner on the Flat between seven furlongs and a mile for the Duffield's.
