Scored by a whopping 15l in a Chester novice and once again looked a useful prospect when following up at Newcastle (1m2f; race thrown up winners); the step up to 1m4f should suit; represents a top yard and an opening mark of 85 could prove generous.

Usually held up towards rear; 12-1 in the Ebor at York on penultimate start but failed to fire; ran respectably two weeks later; acts on soft and should stay on well (last five starts were 1m6f) but he may have to resume improvement; headgear and good 5lb claimer are enlisted.
