171 rated chaser. Landed the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock (3m 1 1/2f) in November by a length and a half from Bristol De Mai and finished third, beaten a length and a half in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham (3m 2f) in March.
He progressed last year winning the Betfair and it all went wrong in the King George VI Chase. That was too bad to be true, but his wind was found to be wrong, so we tweaked that. He travelled better than anything in the Gold Cup and came down the hill the best and jumped the last upsides and then got ran out of it. The way our horse ran at Cheltenham for him to do that was huge. He is back and is in cracking form and he is going to go to Haydock first and he will have a crack at another Gold Cup. I would think he certainly is good enough to win a Gold Cup if we have a bit of luck and he will be bang there again.
