“He had a pretty tough season before we bought him. He has put on some nice weight and he looks good.
“I’ve had a few horses likes him who when they are gelded they stay relaxed and put on condition.
“We didn’t gallop him up at all. He is a real out and out stayer and he has got pretty good form around some good horses.
“He looks like he is a two miler and he obviously has to qualify for the Cups, but we’ll give him his chance and we might have to sneak him through the back door but we’ll see how we go.”
