W160801 weighed 103.5 kg going into the competition, which had 36 entries in the line up for the Riverina Wool Australia Hogget Ram with 19 being NSW Stud rams, and in the MerinoSelect 22 June 2017 analysis he was a trait leader for YCFW, ranked in the top 1% at 30.9, and the DP Plus and MP Plus Indexes.
