High hopes for Biographer future
David Lanigan believes Biographer will be a stayer to follow next year after he signed off his season with victory at Ascot on Saturday.
The three-year-old son of Montjeu has enjoyed an excellent first campaign, steadily progressing and building on the promise of his fine second in the Melrose Stakes at York with an impressive display in the Noel Murless Stakes.
Lanigan believes his charge will be seen to even better effect next year, especially if Britain enjoys better weather than it has this summer.
"I was delighted with him. He did what we thought he was capable of all year," said Lanigan.
"We've always thought he was really nice. We'll put him away now and I think he'll be an even better horse next season.
"It was nice to see him win a race like that to end his season. He did it nicely and saw the trip out well.
"He has never had his ground all year. The form people will say he needs soft ground, but the fact is we've actually wanted to run him on good ground but never been able to find it.
"My personal opinion is that he'll be better on good ground. I'm really looking forward to next season with him."
