Has won all three of his completed races under rules, easily making all in C&D novice (good to soft) three weeks ago; lack of stamina might have been responsible for a poor run over 2m5f (heavy) at Warwick the time before; in deeper here but he may not have reached his ceiling just yet and he's one to consider on today's handicap debut.

Good bumper form, including a win here, and he ran well on hurdling debut at Ascot in October (split two subsequent winners in finishing third); yet to race on genuinely soft ground but viable contender if handling it.
