Having won his 2YO maiden at Leopardstown Brutal then ran 5th in the Racing Post Trophy G1 with an official rating of 107. Placed as a 3YO in April he was transferred by his owners Qatar Racing to the Gordon Elliott stable to continue his career at National Hunt.

Running in the first 3YO maiden of the year at Cork on Monday he again showed his Racing Post Trophy form and won comfortably. While giving 10 lbs to the runner up he powered at the last and drew clear. He looks an exciting prospect and will have his owners dreaming of the Triumph Hurdle in March 2018.

Loreto has a Teofilo yearling colt, a foal by Australia who is herself in foal to Dark Angel.
