Bumper winner (2m, soft) who was runner-up on his first two hurdle starts before winning at Hereford (2m3f, soft) in December; faded when third over 2m7f at Chepstow latest and needs to prove his stamina, but this handicap newcomer has potential for his top yard; respected in first-time tongue-tie.
