Cape Robin

Cape Robin (Ire)

2014 chesnut gelding by Robin Des Champs (Fr) ex Our Pride (GB) (Generous (Ire))

A six year old son of the top-class National Hunt sire Robin Des Champs, whose progeny include the likes of Vautour, Sir Des Champs and Quevega, this athletic individual has improved with each of three runs in Irish points and, having won on his final outing in April, he looked tremendous value for a horse with such a good pedigree.

He looked to get tired on his second outing, having travelled well through the race, but he made no mistake at the third attempt, winning a good-ground maiden at Quakerstown in good style, making most of the running on route to a three-length success.

A second foal, he is a half-brother to Generous Day, who took time to find his feet under rules, winning his first race off a mark of 103 but adding four successes since, the latest of them over fences at Kempton Park to a Racing Post Rating of 135. There is plenty of depth to the pedigree, as the dam is a half-sister to black-type performers Scavenger and Our Ben, as well as several broodmares that have produced good winners under rules.

He looks sure to improve with time and a fence and longer-term, I am very hopeful that he can make up into a useful staying chaser.

He is available to purchase for just £15,000 + VAT and looks tremendous value for such an exciting young prospect.
