Purchased at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses-In-Training sale; he is by Wootton Bassett. Read more about his sire here:

He is 'French Owner Premiums' qualified and has joined the stable of MICK APPLEBY, who has done wonders with our own Star Of Southwold. Given he’s probably one of the shrewdest judges in the game and possibly one of the best improvers of a horse from others’ yards, it's no surprise that Mick was crowned 2019/20 Champion All-Weather Trainer, for the third consecutive year and he really is hard to beat in this sphere!

Mick put this horse to us as an individual from the afore mentioned sale, who he believes will particularly suit his way of operating. An expensive yearling purchase by Hamdan Al Maktoum at €170,000, it’s probably fair to say that he had not yet, proved to be as talented as the Dubai owner had perhaps hoped, so much so, that he was sent to the sales in October 2019, having placed 4th on all three attempts on track in France.

Racing Update: He’s a little superstar of a horse. He’s won 4 races in the last 12 months, including 2 of his last 5. Finished 3rd at Kempton (loves it there and at Southwell) in November, back after a break and possibly would have won with a better draw. Runs 12-15 times a year and wins more than his fair share. Will be busy over the Winter, on the AW bit loves a bit of juice on turf. His Newmarket win was a lovely Friday night out for his owners. DECLARED AT WOLVES ON SATURDAY (currently 2nd favourite.)

Here he is on the gallops (far side):
