|Pedigree:||Zamindar (USA) - La Felicita (USA)|
Lycidas is by Zamindar, high class brother to Zafonic. Half brother to the Group One winner Lady Marion (sold to John Ferguson for 1.5 million gns) and Lava Lamp whose Dam is German Listed. Full brother to Lucidor a Group 3 winner in Germany.
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.
He has run well with credit both on the Flat and over Hurdles winning again at Kelso and coming a good third at Aintree. He will be targeted at a mixed campaign again from March onwards. His ideal conditions are good, good to soft over the jumps and slower ground on the Flat.
