Fairly useful 11-race maiden (stays 1m3f, acts on soft) on Flat in Ireland; promise on first two starts over hurdles and he looked odds-on to win when tipping up at the second-last flight in maiden hurdle at Doncaster (2m, good) three weeks ago, about 6l clear at the time; tongue tied first time that day; should have a big shout.
