Scudamore, who runs the smart Do Your Job in Jewson Sunday’s St Helens Old Roan Chase at Aintree, stopped short of hailing the son of Ocavango as the second coming, but holds him in high regard.
“He’s done everything right so far and we’ve not had many novice hurdlers do what he’s done,” the trainer said.
“He’s going the right way and has got to develop, but physically he looks the part and mentally he seems to have the right attitude for the job so hopefully he can keep progressing.” Racing Post
