Bumper/novice winner for Nick Williams and posted an RPR of 133 when narrowly beaten under a penalty at Wincanton; well handicapped if ever able to rediscover that form and new trainer - £22,000 sale after four runs for Lucinda Russell - has given him a wind op; check the market.

Made an immediate impact for this yard when winning at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) in October on his first run after wind surgery; creditable in-frame efforts on his next two starts and was reported to have been unsuited by heavy ground when pulling up at Uttoxeter latest; well beaten sole previous attempt at 3m but there was more to it than lack of stamina.

Flat/hurdle winner in Ireland and his two standout runs for this yard were his thirds in handicaps at Newbury (2m, heavy) and over C&D (good to soft) when last seen in April; didn't do a lot wrong then in first-time cheekpieces and must have a shout if straight enough to do himself justice.
