C&D winner in October, ran creditably in hot race next time and eventually asserted in dominant style at Wincanton (3m) on latest; has a bit more to prove back on worse than good to soft ground (third on soft on final start last term) but he's had just six races, so plenty of potential, and shapes as if he has major stamina reserves; lots to like.
