He is a 3/4 or, as sometimes called, 3 parts brother to the mighty Denman. In other words, 3 of his 4 grandparents are the same. Denman was rated 184 and along with Sprinter Sacre, was just about the best chaser we have seen in the 2000's. He was a sheer tank of a horse who grinded his opposition into submission.
Back to full fitness after an injury, he is another who jumps for fun. He has shown significant ability on the level already winning on debut and placing 2nd three times from his four starts, he looks one set to be an exciting novice hurdler.
In Nicky's 2018/2019 Season Preview he says: "Armaans Wish started his life some while ago winning a bumper and being placed and then two years on the sidelines before making his debut over hurdles at the beginning of July, finishing a very credible second first time out and he will continue over hurdles throughout the rest of the autumn. I am pretty sure he is essentially a good-ground horse, being a son of Presenting and he will undoubtedly jump a fence when the time comes."
12th Nov': The Racing Post have today published a Nicky Henderson Stable Tour. We have attached a screen shot of Nicky's thoughts about Armaans Wish in the gallery.
Syndicate manager update: Probably the most impressive loose schooler (jumping fences in a barn, without a jockey on) we've ever seen. He simply jumps for fun. He glides from one side of the fence to the other. So he has a very exciting future over hurdles and fences in 2018/19 and beyond. I'd say we will begin having race entries in the next couple of weeks and shouldn't be far away from seeing him out again.
