A Darley homebred, Cavalryman is a three quarters brother to Finity, Group Three-placed for John Oxx, out of a Group Three-placed mare.

Darley sire Halling looks set comfortably to exceed his earnings total for 2008 this year. He now has four stakes winners, including Prix Greffulhe winner Cutlass Bay and Queen's Vase winner Holberg, amongst his 35 winners to date. He had 42 European winners last year. This win is Halling's first at Group One Level and pushed him to third in our list of leading sires standing between £5,000 and £10,000, by European earnings.
