Of this well sized ring, he sailed around with huge aplomb and exhibited that very light movement coupled with an

Elasticity that ate up the ground. Lovely head piece, elegant neck, excellent body and well angled croup which finished with a

Ring tail, and shown in hard muscled condition, he was hard to fault.
