Irish point winner (on soft) who looked very good in comfortably beating a useful opponent on his bumper debut at Uttoxeter (good to soft); that was in March 2021 but the stable's runners are usually pretty straight when returning from breaks.

Creditable efforts in defeat in Graded novice chases this winter (3m, good/good to soft) and ran well for long way in 3m6f NH Chase at Cheltenham last month (heavy; beaten 32l); could be in the mix now back down in trip and back in a handicap, provided the removal of cheekpieces isn't an issue.
