Impressive hurdle debut at Newbury (2m, soft) last winter; nowhere near that level in five subsequent outings over hurdles but back on track switched to fences when second of eight in 2m Hereford handicap (good to soft) in January; this sometimes keen-goer doesn't appeal as certain to benefit from this longer trip.

Came from off the pace to justify odds-on favouritism in good-ground bumper at Huntingdon in the spring; made mistakes and raced too freely when only third at 4-11 on hurdling debut there last month; retains potential and the addition of a hood could help him to settle.
