A clever gambler and sportsman, a friend of Frank Ballindine, living at Handicap Lodge and devoted entirely to making money for Dot Blake.
"...an effeminate-looking, slight-made man, about thirty or thirty-three years of age; good looking and gentlemanlike.... He had a cold, quiet grey eye, and a thin lip. ... On matters connected with racing, his word was infallible ... a finished gambler." - The Kellys and The O'Kellys
