Ganbei is a lovely chestnut gelding, well related being a half brother to five different winners under rules. He is a nine times winning point to point to pointer, with wins at Dalton Park, Charm Park, Bangor, Whitcliffe Grange, North Carlton, Tabley and Heslaker. Ganbei won his first race under rules at Huntingdon in February 2016 where he took a handicap hurdle.

Ganbei opened his account for 2017 at Market Rasen in April over fences ridden by Harry Bannister and then followed up at Bangor later in the month.
