Mr P.J. Whitten
This racy three year old gelding is a half brother to Trinity River who was a five furlong maiden winner as a two year old for the yard and placed on a further five of her eight starts. Quite a late foal he took a little time to come to hand. He ran nicely on debut at Chepstow as a two year but was a bit disappointing second time out, showing a bit of temperament. It was decided to geld him and give him a little break.
His comeback run as three year old saw him finish fourth over five furlongs at Wolverhampton, a run he would have needed from a fitness perspective. Although out paced early it was encouraging to see him finishing his race off and running right through the line. He stepped up to win on handicap debut over seven furlongs at Wolverhampton, as expected the extra two furlongs really suiting him. He ran well on his next two starts without quite matching that form and has been given a little freshen up and change of routine for a return to the track in June.
