Eighth foal; half-brother to winners Foxy Jacks (useful 2m4f hurdle/chase), Benny's Oscar (2m5f hurdle), My Charity (2m3f hurdle) and Uimhir A Seacht (2m1f/2m3f hurdle); unraced dam closely related to smart 2m-3m jumper Seven Is My Number; stoutly bred and related to plenty of good winners; interesting newcomer.

Second reserve; won a maiden point for Colin Bowe at Portrush during the autumn campaign; third in that event was Jack Hyde who made headlines when John Reddington rode him to a Newcastle bumper win; strong French pedigree includes the names of Zainta (dam of good jumpers Zaidpour and Zaynar) and leading French hurdler Zaiyad; deserves respect.
