Stable doesn't have many debut bumper winners but this 82,000euros 3yo purchase won very easily on soft ground at Warwick last March; found one too good when evens on hurdling debut at Exeter (2m, good to soft) in November but the form has been boosted and there's plenty of scope for improvement in his jumping; the one to beat on form and probably potential.
