|Name:||Sao Maxence (FR)|
|Pedigree:||Saint Des Saints (FR) - Primadona (FR)|
|Owner:||John and Jill Dodd|
Sao Maxence has returned looking particularly good – he has matured and is behaving well. His win at Ayr was a gritty performance but coming second in his following race when carrying a penalty showed him in an even better light. He has schooled well and hopefully will make up into an exciting Novice Hurdler on softer ground.
By Saint des Saints who was in training in France when we worked out there. Excellent Cadoudal line. He was a decent racehorse (Group 2 and 3 Auteuil winner) himself before going on to be a very good Sire of Cheltenham winners and Storm of Saintly has broken the million pound prize money mark. Dam Primadona a ﬁve times winner herself (Hurdle and Chase) has produced three winners so far (Flat Hurdle and Chase).
