Verdict

Stuart Crawford: "We always thought a lot of this horse. He did well in bumpers and over hurdles and is now doing well over fences. He's still a bit careful over the fences. He's a big horse and a proper winter time horse. If the ground is soft at the Festivals he could go and take his chance but ground is the key to him. His pedigree is all staying and hopefully one day there could be a real nice chase in him."
