Cost 85,000 guineas at the Tattersalls, and was bought to run in the best staying flat handicaps. A really handsome athletic individual, with plenty of size and scope. Has had some physical issues and a small wind operation since, and is now back in pre-training. Won a 7 runner maiden at Down Royal by ½ length staying on strongly and suggesting he will be at his best at trips of 1m 4f and further. This followed two quiet runs, where he made eye catching headway once the race was effectively over. His trainer Dermott Weld was keen to retain his services, and there were several other vendors hence his tasty price. May well be seen over hurdles at a future date.
