Third on Irish point debut in February and filled same position on stable/hurdle debut at Carlisle (2m4f, good to soft) in October; disappointed when well-held seventh (behind Ernest Gray) at Warwick (2m5f, soft) in November and not seen again since but has plenty of time to get back on track.

Built on encouraging hurdle debut when staying on well for hard-fought success at Catterick (2m3f, heavy) last month; probably needs to improve again to overcome his penalty here, but that's possible.

Placed in his first two chases (on soft) and looked much more assured over the fences when drawing 19l clear at Doncaster (3m2f, good) in December to register his first win; not disgraced at Newcastle on latest outing but this is quite a rethink over his trip and he also has cheekpieces (tried on final start last term, pulled up) reinstated.

Won Warwick bumper (good to soft) by 13l last season and was respectable fourth in good novice hurdle there (2m5f, soft) in November; took a backward step at Uttoxeter in December and needs to learn to settle better but still has significant potential.

Justified favouritism at Southwell (3m) in January on second chase attempt, adding to his bumper/hurdle wins; heavy defeat at Kempton last time, which strengthens concerns about him on testing ground but connections also decide now to reach for headgear.

Made the frame in two good-ground Warwick bumpers last spring, latterly when second (no match for winner) behind an exciting prospect, but made low-key reappearance there in December and is probably best watched on today's hurdling debut.
