Out of an unraced sister to useful jumper Jenkins; bought for 210,000euros soon after winning Irish point debut on yielding ground in April; the runner-up (Ghost Hunter; runs in 12.52 race) didn't do much to advertise that form on his rules debut but, nevertheless, this 4yo is a very interesting recruit; tongue-tie fitted.
