Just two career starts and shaped with real promise when third on his C&D hurdling debut in November (after 11 months off); finished a long way clear of the rest (including a subsequent winner) and strong candidate if able to reproduce that effort after 75 days off.

Solid form when making a successful chase debut over C&D (good to soft); ran no sort of race here in January in first-time cheekpieces but the headgear was dispensed with at Plumpton (3m2f, soft) yesterday and he won that amateurs' handicap, albeit fortunate to do so after clear leader unseated at the last; has 7lb penalty if he turns out again one day later.
