Trainer - Dan Skelton
Jockey - Harry Skelton
A flat recruit who came to the Skelton yard with a couple of screws loose. He did everything wrong at Warwick and still comfortably won by a massive 37 lengths.
With the prospect of something special on their hands the yard churned him out again 8 days later in a grade 2 Triumph hurdle trial and once again he pulled himself to the front but his engine carried him home.
A good looking course and distance win in the books.
The real test came last time out in the grade 1 Coral Juvenile hurdle finale where he held off Irish raider Cerberus and solid subsequent handicap winner Nordano.
He’s one of many that will try set the fractions in this race, hopefully the occasion doesn’t get to him as he’s possibly posting the best form in the field.
