Changed hands for £340,000 after winning Irish maiden point (3m, soft) in February 2022 and he impressed at Doncaster early this year in his two bumpers for Neil Mulholland (2m, good to soft/good); now with Nicky Henderson (remains in same ownership) and he's an exciting prospect for hurdles.

Highly promising son of Blue Bresil, the sire of Constitution Hill; impressive in novice hurdle here (2m, good to soft) last month on debut for Nicky Henderson, adding to his point/bumper wins and looking a Graded horse in the making; likely to be as effective over this longer distance; withdrawn from a Sandown race this month due to heavy ground; remains unbeaten and commands major respect.
