Qatar Racing's homebred colt British Camp made a very promising winning debut at Kempton on Wednesday and looks a horse with plenty of potential. We also had Obsess win easily in France on Thursday.

Stunning 3yo British Camp lined up against some useful rivals – including two previous winners – in a 1m3f novice at Kempton on Wednesday evening and got up on the line. Overcoming greenness, British Camp found plenty for pressure under an educational ride from Kevin Stott and looks the type to improve significantly next time.

British Camp comes from the Andrew Balding yard, which isn’t known for debut winners. He also has a pedigree that suggests the best is very much yet to come as he’s a Lope de Vega half-brother to last year’s Gr.2 Queen’s Vase runner-up Saint George (also born at Tweenhills), out of Stakes-placed Galileo mare Lady Dragon.

British Camp was born, raised and grazed at Tweenhills and we are very hopeful there’ll be many more good days to come from this strapping colt.

Qatar Racing also had an easy winner on Thursday when 3yo filly Obsess won a 6.5f Chantilly maiden for Jean-Claude Rouget and jockey Mme Coralie Pacaut. Obsess is by Siyouni out of Frankel mare Aurora Gold.
