A very tall horse at 17 hands, Speak of The Devil is a strapping son of Mahler and a classy staying chaser in the making. He did incredibly well to win a good-ground Irish point on debut, overcoming a lack of jumping in the closing stages (last two fences omitted), something which would not have suited this strong staying type. He has had two runs over hurdles for us, gaining valuable experience ahead of a switch to fences, soft ground handicap chases over 3m+ sure to bring out the best in him. He was quite backward last winter but is much stronger following a summer break and has been jumping really well at home, displaying the fantastic attitude that was a feature of his point win. He should be ready to run at the end of September and now is the perfect time to join as this will be the season when he really starts to fulfil his potential.
