Hello Youmzain continued the trend of the Classic generation by winning the Betfair Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday afternoon.
Both Ten Sovereigns and Advertise had won top-level contests this season, and Hello Youmzain followed suit as the three-year-old powered home with James Doyle on board.
Bookies struggled to find a favourite for the race after Ten Sovereigns and Advertise were withdrawn on Friday, but The Tin Man did his best to win when running well alongside the rail.
Hello Youmzain was forced to dig deep after setting the early pace, and trainer Kevin Ryan was delighted with his stable star.
He told reporters: "We decided after Ascot that we'd be patient with him as it's not all about this year. These horses don't come around very often, and although we gave him a tentative entry in the Nunthorpe, this race was always the plan.
"He's such a young horse and a big horse as well. You shouldn't wish your life away, but he's going to mature, and he'll be a stronger horse next year. He's very exciting.
"He'll have one more run this year on Champions Day at Ascot, and then we'll put him away for next season.
"I wouldn't rule out bringing him back to five furlongs at some stage. He showed today he has loads of pace - Major Jumbo is not a slow horse and he had him off the steel within a furlong."
