    Sadly I just heard this fellow was put down during the week due to a broken pelvis.

    I think most of us will remember his Cheltenham performances as a novice, looking like he was going to be the ‘new kid on the block’.

    Alas, it never really happened, but an exciting horse for sure.

    Real shame.

    Couldn’t agree more, lovely horse. Also heard that Soeur Fontenail due to run at Aintree had a heart attack on the gallops, such a shame.

    Has she, QC? That’s terrible news. If it’s the horse I think it is, one of her owners was an ex-Sporting Life guy who did tons of freelance work for us at the Sportsman – excellent analyst, proof-reader and storyteller. He was so looking forward to another fun campaign with her.

    Remember Bandit’s last big win in the Rowland Meyrick
