|Pedigree:||Multiplex (GB) - Playful Lady (GB)|
|Owner:||Mrs Ann Fraser|
Multipede is by Sire Multiplex who won four on the flat 2-4yrs including a Group 3 and Listed race at Longchamp. He has had a good start as a Sire getting plenty of 2yo winners including Radio Gaga Group 3 and Listed placed and the five times-winning Daddy Warbucks. Also Juveniles (National Hunt) Flat and Hurdle winner Bob’s World (runner in the Aintree 4yo Grade 1 and 2nd at Sandown) and dual bumper winner Devenish Island. Multiplex is by Danehill a Sire doing well on the flat, with a good strike rate in his 2yo's and 40% winners to runners.
The Dam Playful Lady by Theatrical Charmer has produced 3 foals. The Grand Dam, Lady Day, is a middle distance winner 1m 1f-1m 4f in France and has produced 8 foals, including half brother Ticker - 1m1f 1m2f Flat/2m Hurdle winner.
Third Dam Pauvresse had 6 foals, whom between them have grossed over 100k in prize money, with Fruit Defendu and Profusion having decent form on the flat.
James is pleased with Multipede's efforts over Hurdles last season and he looks to have a workable handicap mark. He was third last time to Nicki’s Nipper over an extreme three 3.5 miles. Being only five, he is bound to improve physically again and he jumps well and has learned to become a racehorse. With a mark of 89 he should have plenty of opportunities and he needs a cut in the ground, a stiff course and a staying trip.
