The unstoppable Barbican (3g Hurricane Run-The Faraway Tree, by Suave Dancer) landed his sixth victory of 2011 when running away with the Listed Wild Flower Stakes at Kempton.
Alan Bailey’s stable star looks set to be a major force next season following this five-length success and his 2012 campaign is set to start at the Dubai Carnival.
“We got the notification today that Barbican has been accepted for Dubai so I have been looking at it the programme today. He is progressive,” owner John Stocker told www.racingpost.com.
The Hascombe and Valiant Stud-bred gelding was bought by Stocker for just 32,000gns at last year’s Tattersalls Horses In Training Sale.
