A very imposing, big horse that had some smart form in National Hunt Flat Races when trained by Martyn Meade. We bought him privately after he disappointed in the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival in 2019, a race that doesn't necessarily suit all horses.
He started his career for Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson in a novice hurdle at Ascot in November 2019, where unfortunately he was pulled up and was subsequently found to have bled from the nose. Nicky has been very patient with the horse since then, and brought him back to the racecourse in December 2020 where he ran with huge promise to finish 2nd in a very hot novice hurdle.
We are very much looking forward to the rest of this season over hurdles for CASCOVA, but his best days are likely to be over fences in coming seasons.
