Four Flat wins (three on fast ground, one AW) at up to 1m4f for Sir Mark Prescott in 2018; two long absences since, with low-level form on the switch to hurdling this year but he did get more competitive when 12l fourth of 14 on handicap hurdle debut here (2m4f, good; Ange Endormi third) last time, staying on; all hope might not be lost.
