It's fair to say, Paul Nicholls does not hold the Olympic Torch as he once did when he had the likes of Kauto Star and Denman in his yard.
Nowadays, playing second fiddle to Nicky Henderson in the Trainers Championship, he does struggle to throw down a challenge in the top Championship races.
That being said, he has started the 2018 campaign very promisingly indeed and does have some fine individuals at his base in Ditcheat.
Frodon and Politologue are arguably two of his best performers, having both landed graded contests in the last few weeks.
He has some promising juveniles coming through for the future in the shape of Quel Destin, Getaway Trump and Amour De Nuit, and long may it continue.
