|Pedigree:||Kapgarde (FR) – Nikoline (FR)|
|Owner:||John and Jill Dodd|
Nikgarde was unlucky not to win his Bumper at Newcastle last season and is a quality horse. He handles all types of ground and track and will have one more Bumper before going Novice Hurdling.
Kapgarde was a high class French winner and is a very successful Sire of jumpers including Garde La Victoire, Ultragold and Hammersley Lake. The Dam Nikoline won three times and was placed ﬁve times from 10 runs in France and her ﬁrst foal Confuceen (2014) is a winner and placed ﬁve times over jumps in France. Nikgarde is her second foal.
