Winning two of his ﬁve hurdle races in some pretty tough handicaps, he was a model of consistency last season. He has schooled very well over fences and should rate as an exciting Novice Handicap Chaser. He handles all ground and all tracks and will probably start in a Handicap Hurdle before going Novice Handicap Chasing.
By Balko, a top class Hurdler and Chaser in France in training when we worked for Guillaume Macaire. Proving a good NH sire (17% Jumps and Bumpers) including Gitane du Berlais, Fago and Mitchto.
