0-21 over hurdles/fences prior to winning at Haydock (2m4f, soft) last Saturday; over half the fences were omitted and his strike-rate suggests he's not an obvious one to follow up, but he frequently finishes placed and has run well over this C&D on heavy going; could give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Placed in Limerick maiden (2m3f, yielding) last April; safely held in six handicaps for new stable since July but last month's wind op might have made a difference; another one to monitor in the betting.
