1-13 in France and made it third-time lucky for this yard when successful at Newcastle (1m, AW) in March; close third back on turf at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) late last month, but disappointed at Newmarket (1m, good) two days later; may have found the run coming too soon, but that was just nine days ago so he does have a question to answer.
