A classy and consistent dual purpose star in the yard. After he ran a highly creditable 5th in the Chester Plate, he went to Haydock (26th May) when he ran a close 2nd over 2m. He ran much better when 3rd in the Shergar Cup at Ascot (11th August) and picked up another bronze a fortnight later at Newmarket. He deservedly got his head back in front when winning at Doncaster (15th September) under William Buick and backed that up with another win over 12f at Newmarket (27th September) under Ryan Moore. He made it a hattrick by winning at Leicester (9th October) under James Doyle. Reverting to hurdles at Aintree (28th October) he was unsuited by the moderate pace. BHA jumps mark 132 and he's rated 104 on the flat.
