Some promising efforts in cross country races last season; tailed off sole start this term in a cross country; poor record fresh (off 130 days) and others preferred.

Twice runner-up in Britain last year in handicap chases but not setting the track alight on recent starts, that despite a 'point' win a few starts back; only six so plenty of time to recapture the sparkle but looks a modest betting proposition for now.
