Impressed on bumper debut last spring; lacked fluency and raced far too freely when beaten at short odds on hurdling debut in the autumn but caught the eye making good late headway for second (no threat to winner) at Newbury (2m, soft; first-time hood) on New Year's Eve and should still have a lot more to offer.
