The last time we were recommended an unbroken store horse by Nicky Henderson, he turned out to be Might Bite! We were therefore very keen to not let history repeat itself and snapped him up as soon as the Champion trainer put him to us!

He is from a wonderful French National Hunt family, who bloodstock agent (Highflyer) Anthony Bromley knows very well and he is half brother to a seven time winner. Read about his sire SECRET SINGER here: http://www.france-sire.com/etalon-307-secret_singer.php

He’s a lovely specimen and has a real touch of quality and presence about him. As soon as Nicky showed him to us we were taken by him - he’s got a fantastic walk and swagger.

Training Update: Beset with minor niggle after minor niggle at the back end of 2020 and early 2021 but he’s right as rain now and is in the form of his life. Looks like 3m will be his trip and he remains lightly raced and thoroughly unexposed. We can’t wait to see him over fences too, probably late 2022 but there’s plenty of unfinished business over hurdles first.
