A much deserved G1 success for Xtension winning the G1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin on Monday. Prior to this win, Xtension's only stakes win had been in the G2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood in 2009. But Xtension is a colt that's run huge races in the Coventry Stakes, Dewhurst Stakes, English 2000 Guineas, Irish 2000 Guineas, Prix Jean-Prat, Prix Eugene Adam, Hong Kong Classic Cup, and the Hong Kong Derby. Xtension's worst finish in all of those stakes had been 5th in the 09' Irish 2000 Guineas, and two 4th place finishes in the 2010 Prix Eugene Adam and the 2011 Hong Kong Classic Cup. In all his other starts, being the Coventry Stakes, Dewhurst Stakes, English 2000 Guineas, Prix Jean-Prat, and the Hong Kong Derby. Xtension had run 2nd or 3rd. So this is definitely a talented colt that's been overdue a big win like this in his career. Xtension now hold's an entry to return to the UK from Hong Kong in June for the G1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal-Ascot. Where he would be facing the likes of Goldikova, Canford Cliffs, and possibly Dick Turpin.
