The son of Shantou created a big impression when winning the NH Flat Race at Carlisle on 9th November for the Crawford team. Held up just off the pace, he tracked the leaders and travelled nicely throughout. He was short of room 2f out but was switched left and produced to lead a furlong out to win in good style. In truth he was value for more than the winning distance. He looks an exciting prospect for Novice Hurdles.
