Talented nine-year-old for Henry De Bromhead who has had just three runs in the last year or so. He romped home to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup last year, beating stablemate Minella Indo by 15 lengths but has been pulled up on both occasions since, in the Betfair Chase at Haydock and the Cheltenham Gold Cup this year before three out.
An extremely talented runner for De Bromhead who’s best days may be in the past. He has been lightly raced for the last year or so which hasn’t been ideal preparation for the big races. Suspect he will struggle again unless showing that Gold Cup winning form again, which unfortunately feels unlikely.
