Twice run as a two year old, finishing second in his first start and then winning very easily in his second. As a three year old he ran once in the Dr Busch Memorial, the Group 3 Derby Trial. This last year he has run seven times, finishing in the money six times, and only outside at Royal Ascot where the ground was against him. He won a Class 2 handicap at York over 1mile 6 furlongs and has gone from a rating of 75 to 95.
After his very impressive win at Kelso in May Lycidas will continue to mix Novice Hurdles and Novice Handicap Hurdles this season, a really exciting horse to follow.
