Cursory Glance

Cursory Glance

Fresh from tasting Classic glory for the first time with Saturday's Ladbrokes St Leger hero Kingston Hill, Varian unleashed Cursory Glance, the winner of the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot before finishing second in York's Lowther Stakes, at the highest level.

The 11-8 favourite tracked the leaders on her first appearance over seven furlongs before being nudged towards the front passing the final furlong marker. Lucida finished powerfully to make a race of it, but Cursory Glance held on by a neck.

Aidan O'Brien's course maiden winner Found ran a good race to finish third on just her second start.

Varian said: "Andrea felt she was running a bit lazy, and when he gave her a squeeze she took off. Perhaps she ended up in front a bit too long but it was a funny race.

"She has tremendous natural speed, is very talented and gets this trip well.

"She is a Group One winner now and that will probably be it for this season. Hopefully she will have a massive year next year.

"It has been a magical weekend and has not really sunk in yet.

"Kingston Hill is fine this morning but he had a tough race yesterday. If he bounces back from the St Leger and is 100 per cent then he deserves to be in the Arc line-up."
