A flat recruit, Pied Piper only showed his best during his time with John Gosden when facing heavy ground.
He continued this trend when moving to hurdles and beating Vauban on deep ground at Punchestown. Sealing victory with a better jump at the last flight.
Last seen making an absolute mockery of a Grade 2 race at Cheltenham. Not coming off the bridle under Davy Russell, the ground officially being good, he broke his curse of only being effective on slow ground.
The form hasn’t worked out great but a course and distance win in the books, he’ll be happy to have seen the rain fall over Prestbury Park this week.
