Back to form with a bang when coming from off the pace to land a 7f AW handicap on Thursday; not handicapped out of things despite the penalty and he handled slow ground in Ireland; more appealing than most.

Yet to win after 17 attempts but he has shown promise at a low level and has dropped in the weights; prominent in the betting for a 0-55 handicap at Chelmsford ten days ago (first-time visor, retained) where he didn't get a clear run; promise on slow ground; not a forlorn hope back at 1m.
