Flat-bred Nathaniel gelding made a promising belated debut in his trainer's colours when finishing a clear second in recent Naas 4yo bumper, having been briefly short of room at a crucial stage then staying on well; now adorns the Gigginstown silks and given the benefit of that experience should take plenty of beating.

Nathaniel gelding; closely related to 1m2f winner Majalaat (RPR 80), half-brother to 6f winners Miqyaas (UAE dirt; 85) and Fikhaar (AW; 61); dam unraced half-sister to 5f 2yo Group 2 winner Maqaasid; not an obvious jumps pedigree but any bumper runner for this yard warrants respect and market support certainly worth noting.
