"Genius Boy aims to continue his fantastic run of form in the totepool Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury on Thursday.

James Tate's prolific winner was unraced as a juvenile and as a three-year-old, but he has appeared intent on making up for lost time this season.

The son of New Approach has won five times from eight starts, including his last four races, and Tate feels the time is right to test the water at Group Three level."

"Trainer Paul Deegan has warned Sruthan is likely to improve for the run as he makes his first appearance since May in the Invesco Pension Consultants Desmond Stakes at Leopardstown on Thursday.

Having signed off his 2013 campaign with a first Pattern victory in the Concorde Stakes at Tipperary, he struck again at Group Three level upon his return to action in the Gladness Stakes at the Curragh in April.

However, Sruthan disappointed on his Group One debut in the Lockinge at Newbury and makes his first appearance since then."
