Trainer: Paul Nicholls (Somerset)
Shares available for £55
Inca De Lafayette is an attractive three-year-old grey gelding. He won his last race on the Flat (in a race for horses that are principally bred to become jumpers), at Lyon (1m4f), on only his fifth career start, and had been placed previously. He looks the ideal type to go juvenile hurdling this season.
Inca De Lafayette is by Gris De Gris, who was an extremely tough racehorse, winning nine races from 31 starts. Gris De Gris is the sire of JP McManus' useful hurdler and chaser, Campeador. Gris De Gris’ other progeny includes Houx Gris, who won in France and was placed at Grade 1 level for Paul Nicholls, as well as Demi Sang, who has won in France and Britain. Inca De Lafayette is from an excellent Jumps family, which includes Grade 2 hurdles winner, Urban Hymn.
The current plan is for Inca De Lafayette to be prepared for a juvenile hurdling campaign this winter. He has the size and scope to progress and may go chasing further down the line.
Inca De Lafayette is to be trained by Paul Nicholls from his Ditcheat base in Somerset. Paul, who has been crowned Champion Jumps Trainer a remarkable twelve times, has trained many winners for Owners Group over the years, including the likes of Sound Investment, Getaway Trump, Miranda and Stage Star.
"I am delighted to be training Inca De Lafayette. I love juvenile hurdlers and this horse fits the bill perfectly. He looked good on his last start in France and I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses over the next few months and beyond. Providing all goes well with him, I hope that he will be able to run over hurdles at some point in the new year." Paul Nicholls
