Beneficial, who stands at Knockhouse Stud, is also sire of Sun Alliance Chase winner Cooldine, and Racing Post Chase winner Gungudu.

Realt Dubh was bought as a four-year-old at Brightwells Cheltenham sale in April 2008 for £90,000 by Mags O'Toole. He is one of two winners out of the Exit To Nowhere mare Suez Canal, who comes from a flat orientated family that features Suez Canal's   Grade 2 winning half-sister Guiza, dam of Man O'War third Drama Critic.
