Joined LRS in November. This 7 year old gelded son of Overbury who is a Cork Maiden Hurdle winner as well as being placed 4 times over timber & 5 times over fences. Was 2nd of 13 in a 2 mile Handicap Hurdle at Kelso on 27th October. A strong travelling sort who is a novice over the larger obstacles. 'Stevie' is a quick, accurate jumper who improved with each of his first three runs for us before romping home in a 2 mile Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at Worcester on 9th May. See the News Article 'New Jump Season Off To A Flyer.' Bumped into potentially a smart recruit to chasing when runner-up to Felix Mendelssohn at Perth ( 15th May) but then found the ground too soft on his next three starts before finishing runner-up over fences at Southwell (16th July) & then romping to a 9 length success under champion jockey Richard Johnson at Market Rasen's main meeting of the year 4 days later. A disappointing favourite when only 4th at Perth on 31st July but has since had a wind operation.
Will be back in action over fences at Bangor on Friday 13th December.
