Reverting to sprinting, the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt showed his class on his first start against older horses.

The son of War Front kept up the gallop to land a convincing success from the front.

Brando, who delayed the start as he had to be re-plated, went one place better than 12 months ago in second.

Euchen Glen is likely to bid for a famous York double next month.

The horse produced a dominant front-running victory in the 59th John Smith’s Cup.
