The four-year-old is settling into life at Ditcheat and the handler is looking forward to learning more about his new recruit.
Writing in his exclusive column at www.betfair.com/paulnicholls the champion trainer said: "I think we have just bought a decent four-year-old from France in the shape of Fago for Graham Wylie. It's a long way down the line but maybe he could just end up being an Arkle possible.
"After all, Fago looked to be a non-stayer when second in a 2m6f Grade 1 chase last month - funnily enough Master Minded was being raced over 2m5f in France before we bought him - and I see Timeform have already rated him 143 on that.
"Hopefully, there is more to come from him, once we get him bedded in and see what we have."
