There are several black type performers under the second and third dams Dust Dancer and Galaxie Dust including Zoffany, Wilshere Boulevard, Bulaxie, Claxon and Cassydora. Projection had a great season winning twice from five starts at 2, including a plus 10 conditions race at Salisbury, having run close in the DBS Premier Sales race at York and the Weatherbys Hamilton Stakes at Doncaster. Last year he had some niggles early on in the year which meant he only saw the course three times, running a blinder first time out at Newmarket to be beat 4 lengths in a competitive handicap, before getting a poor draw in the Silver Stewards Cup to be 5/28 and then was unlucky to be beaten a head at Newmarket when picking up a minor injury. He is rated 103 and will be running at 6f with all the usual targets –  Wokingham and Stewards Cup.
