Off the mark at the 18th attempt when making all in a big-field handicap at Redcar in September (5f, good); needed his reappearance at Southwell and shaped considerably better than the distance beaten suggests at Nottingham 11 days ago, missing the break and making up his ground quickly only for those exertions to take their toll late on; dangerous if breaking on terms.
