Two fine runs in December when second to Britzka in 3yo maiden hurdle before beaten 13.5l in fourth behind Fil Dor in Leopardstown Grade 2; found Grade 1 too much behind Vauban when trailing field at Dublin Racing Festival; not disgraced in sixth on stable bow four days ago, switching back to Flat for 1m4f maiden; should show up well but possibly vulnerable to improver.
