Having ran respectably over hurdles in France the son of Falco made his British/chase debut at Ffos Las in November in very tricky conditions.
The four year old took every fence in his stride, getting better as the race went on and went on to win the event by an eased down 30 lengths.
That performance was highly impressive and he looked to prove he was a Grade One horse in the making next time out at Sandown when being entered into the Henry VIII Novices' Chase.
Having a big reputation the yard thought he had a big chance but on the day he had to settle for second behind the impressive Allmankind, who landed the event in good style.
With that run under his belt in Grade One company he headed into the Grade One Scilly Isles Novices' Chase at Sandown, looking for the step up in trip to really bring him along.
However, when still looking full of running he fell with almost half of the race left to go, leaving a lot to be desired for punters.
Having swerved the Cheltenham festival, he had a prep run last time out at Newbury ahead of this race and he went on to score with ease at a very short price.
He is obviously a classy recruit for the yard and looks to be one of the more likely winners.
