Found plenty of improvement when landing two handicaps (2m/2m3f) in March; came up short in his hat-trick bid at Uttoxeter in May but wasn't beaten far in that Class 3 event; returns from six months off but he sets a good standard under a double penalty back in a novice; respected.

Shaped with promise before falling late on at Wetherby (2m, good to soft) on last October's debut but didn't really build on that when a remote third at Warwick the following month; that was a tough assignment behind subsequent Grade 1 winner Adagio but he still needs to find significant improvement after almost a year off.
