Found the ideal opening on his debut for Chris Dwyer in the spring; had struggled subsequently, including in two runs for his current yard (picked up for 62,000gns) before a much better effort on soft ground last time; that gave something to build on; each-way shout.

Wins in Ireland and over hurdles came on soft ground and possible he found conditions too quick when turned over at odds-on in the spring (C&D); this is a deeper race but he'd progressed well for this yard previously and goes on the shortlist.
