Veteran sprinter Kingsgate Native will bid to get off the mark of the campaign in the Betfred Beverley Bullet on Saturday.

Winner of the Nunthorpe in 2007 and the Golden Jubilee at Royal Ascot the following year, Kingsgate Native is in the twilight of his career as a nine-year-old, but has run consistently well in defeat for trainer Robert Cowell this season.

His latest effort, when eighth in the King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, was perhaps his most disappointing run of the year, but Cowell believes he will better suited by the tougher test presented by Beverley.

He said: "He's an intended runner, as long as the ground isn't too soft.

"His better runs this year have been on stiffer tracks like Sandown and Newmarket, so I would think Beverley will suit him well."
