Broke his hurdles duck (11th attempt) over C&D in January before turning in another solid effort in defeat at Newcastle (2m, good to soft); now 8lb higher than for that C&D win which undoubtedly serves to make him more vulnerable.

Off the mark at the fifth attempt in a first-time tongue-tie (retained) in a maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m, good) in November; there's a question mark about slow ground on this handicap debut but he's unexposed and open to improvement for his top stable.
