Initially very disappointing for new stable this season but suggested he might be ready to exploit some considerable help from the handicapper when close second at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) last month; will be dangerous if his revival starts to gather momentum.

0-10 under rules but his most recent run, when second of 11 over 2m7f at Bangor (soft), was one of his best; has to prove his stamina over an extra 3f (mixed messages from his pedigree) but if stays the longer distance he should be in the mix.
