A very excited Ben Pauling approached us with this 4yo son of Stowaway, who sired the Cheltenham Festival winner Champagne Fever, amongst many other Graded winners in both Novice Chases and over Hurdles.  Conceal’s dam was a winner over hurdles and placed numerous times, from the family of the Gr.1 winning hurdler/chaser Trafford Lad. 

This smart gelding has done nothing but please Ben since the day he arrived. Nico De Boinville rode him in his last piece of work in Lambourn before being turned out for a summer of grass. He showed bags of potential, and reported him to have "a good attitude with a big engine" and thought he was "a very nice horse indeed". 

He has done plenty of schooling, with Ben saying that he has found that jumping is definitely this horse's forte, so whilst we aim to start him in a bumper, he will surely be seen in his best light when tackling obstacles. 

He had a good summer break and after returning to Ben's yard he is now being prepared for the new season.  He has shown an excellent attitude and is the apple of his trainer’s eye.  He will be ready to run in a National Hunt Flat race (bumper) in November and Ben is already talking about potentially targeting some of those leading races, including at the Aintree Grand National Meeting in April.
