They're still flat breds who loved fences. It seems absurd to cling to breeding when he has more scope than the vast majority of NH horses and has shown great agility over fences.

I loved Min yesterday but when it comes to his injury in the supreme, I can't have this idea that it's caused him big problems in the race. If he was really feeling it he would have been tailed off.

It’s also pointless mentioning that Altior is flat bred because he is not. Rather the dam was just sent to a high class stallion who would be capable of firing better horses than most full time NH horses.

Look at the size and scope of Altior, he is built on springs. It’s a far cry from, say, something by Bushranger or Lawman trying to reach the top over fences.

As for top class flat bred chasers, the shortlist would be pretty short for obvious enough reasons.

Not sure of their pedigrees but brothers Viking Flagship & Flagship Uberalles both ran as 2yo’s I believe so they must have been pretty precocious.
