Emma Lavelle: "He hasn't got a clue. He was keen early, and when he got to the last he was 'do you seriously want me to jump that?' He's lanky and I don't expect him to grow into a big chaser but there's oodles of improvement there, and we like him. He's a baby and I don't think he'll have any big targets this season."

Ian Bare: "It's very satisfying to have bred three generations from the same broodmare we bought at Doncaster back in 1975."
