Got to within 12l of the very smart Strong Leader in a good-ground bumper at Warwick and possibly unsuited by heavy ground in a maiden hurdle at Lingfield; a bit of a concern to see cheekpieces turned to quite so soon.

2-6 over fences, the wins gained over 3m on good to soft ground at Uttoxeter and Ludlow; current mark is workable but he's wildly inconsistent, and it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

Third to Six One Nine (beaten 8.5l but now 6lb better off) at Newcastle in January; successful over C&D (soft; with many fences omitted) next time, before a pair of lesser efforts (here and at Market Rasen); has the ability when it all clicks, although some risks are attached.

Made a lot of the running on debut at Ayr (good to soft) in November but weakened into midfield rather tamely there, then ran as though something was amiss at Wincanton on Boxing Day; others look much safer.

1-2 in points for this yard in early 2022 and finished first and second in two bumpers for Dan Skelton later that year, but a well-held third of nine on hurdles debut at Stratford (2m3f, good); interesting to see what the market makes of him back with his former stable after 19 months off.
