As is often the case, juveniles that win over hurdles then struggle a bit going into handicaps and so with his jumping being an asset, we went novice chasing and started off promisingly when third to Some Reign at Hexham and third at Wetherby to Funambule Sivola. He never had the opportunity to run on his favoured course (Newcastle) with soft conditions and was not competitive latterly on the drying ground. This five year old is now stronger and more experienced and with a mark of 94 in the right conditions should be back to winning ways.
Half-sister Maryborough has won on the flat and over hurdles and Dam Niemen was a tough 1m-1m5f winner herself out of a tough 6f performer.
Cokoriko (by Robin Des Champs) was a smart listed winner over hurdles in France and has sired Coko Beach, Five O’Clock, and Scottish Supreme Novice Hurdle winner Fred.
