Brother to bumper/hurdle winner Limerick Lace, half-brother to three other winners Spades Are Trumps, Ilikedwayurthinkin and Walk Me Home; became the fifth of the dam's progeny to win for Gavin Cromwell when too good for odds-on shot Lot Of Joy on debut in a 23-runner maiden at Cork; a good prospect.

Form & Verdict
Odds-on for Punchestown bumper win on debut in February; only workmanlike in landing a Wexford maiden hurdle in October; much better in defeat in a Grade 3 contest at Navan 13 days ago, chasing home a Willie Mullins-trained favourite and relegating a shorter-priced stablemate to third.

First foal; dam French hurdle winner, half-sister to Roi Des Francs, a talented six-time winner, including a Grade 2 novice chase for this stable; Euros360,000 Arqana purchase in July after beating an experienced rival on his debut in a 17-runner conditions hurdle at Auteuil in June; the ground was heavy then, so no issue on that score; very interesting recruit.
