No stopping Nostrum

Two-year-old Kingman colt Nostrum made an eye-catching winning debut at Sandown yesterday.

Anyone wondering why Ryan Moore had decided to drop into Sandown on his way to riding at Leopardstown's evening fixture soon had their answer as Nostrum made an emphatic winning debut in the seven furlong maiden. A Juddmonte homebred son of Kingman, Nostrum earned a quote of 20-1 with Coral for the 2,000 Guineas having put three lengths between himself and runner-up Golden Speech at the line.

"He was left in front a long way out, which I didn't want," said Moore, "but every time I asked him he kept lengthening and we're delighted with what he's done. I think he has plenty of improvement in him, but he is more of a three-year-old than a two-year-old. He'll have no problem going a mile and may get a little further."

Nostrum is out of Mirror Lake who has produced  Group 2 winner Imaging and Listed winner Titus. She has a Frankel yearling filly and is in foal to Oasis Dream.
