A recruit from flat racing for Paul Nicholls and the team at Ditcheat, Paso Doble achieved a very respectable rating of 84 on the level.
Mainly campaigned over intermediate trips he last scored over 10 furlongs at Fairyhouse.
Moved over to this side of the Irish Sea, Paso Doble was clearly showing plenty at home as his new stable saw fit to debut him in the Adonis Hurdle at Kempton. Running a very creditable race to be 3rd behind Tritonic and Case Loupi, he was no match for the winner but was well clear of 4th.
He dropped into a low class novice race thereafter and notched his first success in this sphere despite novice-like tendencies at his obstacles.
Not seen since, the 4 year old gets a small weight for age allowance and has already dipped his toe into graded company.
Going up in trip could unlock some more improvement and the Adonis form is some of the best in the field.
