Horse Description:

Consistent gelding who's a half brother to the dual Group 1 winner COSMIC ENDEAVOUR. Whilst he's nowhere near as well performed as his illustrious half brother, he's always about the place but does tend to ruin his chances by racing ungenerous. Had a recent break of a couple of weeks through the back end of July and into August, and he started back in work on August 7th.

Scheduled to race at Northam on September 13th...
