Verdict

Harry Fry: "He is only a novice (over hurdles) until November 1, so our plan right through the summer was to make the most of that and run him in the Persian War at Chepstow before going straight over fences. The ground has ended up very soft at Chepstow, so that swayed us to come here for this and thankfully it's paid off. He is a horse with plenty of pace. He worked with Rock On Ruby two weeks before the Champion Hurdle last season and on that you would have thought he deserved to take his chance in it. The plan before today was to go straight over fences with him, but we'll see how he's reassessed over hurdles and go from there. Everything about him tells you he's a chaser. He jumps fences very well and hopefully he'll be an exciting recruit to the novice ranks."
