Ascot had an excellent season with winnings of £27,000. A Newcastle specialist, he won there twice and also came second as well as running very creditably first time out at Kelso over four miles to finish sixth. He is at his best from two and half to three miles and is ground adaptable on a flat galloping track. However, he has risen 15lb in the handicap to 134 and does need plenty of time between his races.
By Kapgarde, a very good racehorse in France and decent NH Sire of Milord Thomas, Garde La Victoire etc. and out of Quid De Neuville who was placed Flat/Hurdles and Chase and half-sister to Lili Rochelaise out of a 2m 4f winner.
