Myboycharlie makes his eagerly-anticipated first foray into Group One company in Deauville's Darley Prix Morny on Sunday.

Trained by Tommy Stack, the Danetime colt has created a big impression in winning his two starts to date in rain-softened conditions.

After scoring on his debut, Myboycharlie registered a convincing seven-length verdict over Tuscan Evening in Group Three company last month and has continued to please in the build-up to his next big test.

However, with some very talented youngsters in opposition, connections know the French showpiece will take a lot of winning.

Fozzy Stack, son and assistant to his father, said: ‘We're looking forward to it but it looks a good race with arguably the best two-year-olds in France and England in there.

‘You'd have to respect the Peter Chapple-Hyam horse (Winker Watson) and Andre Fabre's runner (Alexandros) as well as the French filly (Natagora).’

Stack feels Myboycharlie will prove himself a versatile sort in time and hopes he can maintain his flawless record at the weekend.

‘Everything's been fine with him since the Curragh race last time. He's won on pretty soft ground the last twice but I think he'd be fine on good ground as he's a good-actioned horse,’ he added.

‘Six furlongs is fine for him now but I wouldn't think he'd have any difficulty in getting seven furlongs soon.’
