Put simply, Mourzouk ticks all the boxes.
A really athletic and good-moving individual, he has a really classy pedigree and looks to have the potential to make up into a very smart performer in bumpers this season, before going hurdling next year.
His sire has had any amount of high-class performers on the flat (notably French Guineas winner Olmedo and recent Breeders’ Cup winner Fire At Will), but is also 20% with his bumper runners and gets plenty of winners over staying trips.
There is certainly plenty of stamina on the damside of the page. Mourzouk’s two male siblings are both multiple winners, with his City Zip (a much speedier sire) half-brother winning three last year at 1m4f-2m in the UK, while the other half-brother, sold as an unraced two year old at the same sale as Mourzouk back in 2016, was a useful stayer in France, achieving an official rating of 92.
Their dam was unraced, but is from an exceptional family, being a half-sister to two top-class stayers on the flat, as well as three-time Grade 2-winning hurdler Mourad, who was also placed in seven Grade 1s!
I have enjoyed plenty of success purchasing this type of horse (Ocean Wind, Point Of Principle, Hawa Bladi etc.) and he really does look one of the very best physicals I have come across the flat cast-off route.
He is currently enjoying a summer break, but will be back in training in July with a view to making his debut in a bumper in October.

Tim Vaughan is one of the UK’s leading jumps trainers, with over 800 winners in his career to date.
Based 15 miles from Cardiff, Pant Wilkin Stables is set in 200 acres of beautiful countryside, but is a state-of-the-art training facility that has been built from scratch since Tim started at the yard on Gold Cup day in 2008.
Tim and the team are always very welcoming and we look forward to plenty more enjoyable and successful days with the syndicate, both on and off the racecourse.
Our exciting new recruit Mourzouk will start off in a bumper this autumn and we hope he can make up into a smart performer in that sphere this term, while Connard and is a lovely staying chase prospect that we hope can land a nice handicap in 2021/22.
