Just two wins from 13 runs but he's already a better novice chaser than hurdler and he might have gained a Grade 1 success at Fairyhouse (2m4f, good) in November but for several mistakes late on; ran poorly on heavy ground next time; may not have shown his full hand yet but he has something to find with the principals and dropping back to 2m is a concern; tongue-tie added.
