BADRAM, a son of MUKHADRAM, is set to line up undefeated in three starts for the Shadwell-sponsored Premio Parioli, the Italian 2,000 Guineas, later this month.
The chestnut colt, trained by Riccardo Santini, scored impressively third time out in the Premio Daumier, a conditions race over a mile at Rome on Sunday.
BADRAM is owned and bred by Razza Dormello Olgiata Di Citai Spa. He is out of the winning Orpen mare Baratella and hails from the family of multiple Italian Listed winner and Group 1 third Bening.
MUKHADRAM is by the late, great SHAMARDAL, whose son VICTOR LUDORUM won the Poule d’Essai des Poulains on Monday.
He is the sire of the winners of 80 races and the earners of more than £900,000. His best performers are US Grade 3 winner A BIT SPECIAL and stakes performers CABALLERO CHOPPER, GLOVES LYNCH, ROMSEY and SECRET STASH.
MUKHADRAM stands at Nunnery Stud this year at a fee of just £6,000.
