Still unexposed; absent since opening his account in handicap hurdle here (3m, good; ran off this mark) in April 2022; has grown into a strapping chasing type, according to trainer in autumn Stable Tour; very interesting on return to action.

Cost 150,000euros in 2019 and a beaten favourite on three of his four starts, so he's been expensive to follow; however, he ran perfectly well when 11l third of 11 in novice at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) last month and now goes handicapping after just two runs over hurdles; bred to stay at least this far and could have untapped potential.
