This horse was bred to be quite smart on the flat and he proved his worth as he was a talented stayer for French trainer Andre Fabre in France, finishing runner-up in the Group Two Prix Chaudenay at the Arc meeting in 2020.
It remains an unknown whether or not he can be as useful over the smaller obstacles in higher graded races, but we have not seen much of him since then.
He made a decent start to life over hurdles in Britain when winning in good fashion at Hereford before chasing home the talented Fergal O’Brien trained Hullnback under a penalty at Haydock.
That latest effort should not be dismissed, as the winner was a smart bumper horse last season and trainer Kerry Lee is not usually one to over complicate things with her horses.
Will have to come on from that second last time out to have any say in this as Nemean Lion is stepping up into what now is Grade 1 company.
