Bought for £65,000 after an Irish point-to-point win in December and confirmed the promise of that with a 9L success in his debut bumper (2m1f, soft) at Sedgefield last month. Likely to be very competitive again under his penalty.
Cost €40,000 as a three-year-old and then just £7,500 last year. Closely related to a point-to-point winner out of a once-raced half-sister to 2m Flat/very useful 2m hurdle/chase winner Topacio. Stable 2-24 in bumpers this season.
Cost €78,000 at three. Sent off at just 3-1 for his debut at Ffos Las (heavy) in December but was beaten 3f out there, perhaps due to the ground. Stable 2-15 in bumpers this season and in decent form, so he can probably improve.
