Won only start in bumpers; no real threat in three novice hurdles but attracted support ahead of last month's handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m2f, good to soft); sloppy round of jumping cost him dear and he did well to finish third; slightly longer trip could help and has claims if he can find more fluency; cheekpieces added.
