Had become a frustrating operator prior to Kilbeggan beginners win, and backed it up with another decent third at same 15-days ago, although his jumping was a bit suspect at times in the latter; his rating alone, allied with his rider's valuable 5lb claim, suggests big things here, and it will be no surprise if he lands the top step of the podium.
