Royal Thief Michael (O'Leary, of Gigginstown House Stud) suggested claiming and Hugh got a good tune out of him. He is tough and stays really well and Hugh was really good on him. His jumping is a bit hit and miss but he can be lazy and you have to be on top of him all the time. He is funny; we dropped him in the last day and Rachael (Blackmore) said he is slow and to ride him handier so it worked and he toughed it out.
