Showed promise in bumpers before spending 751 days on the sidelines; nice step forward on third start after break when third on soft at Gowran in auction maiden hurdle; that form has been franked since by the first two home filling the same positions in a Leopardstown auction novice hurdle; probably wants softer ground but still respected.
