Steadily progressive over hurdles, scoring twice at Wetherby (2m/2m4f, soft/good) early this year; the form of the second win was boosted when the runner-up went one better next time and there's almost certainly better still to come now he moves into handicaps; could be the pick of the Skelton trio.
