Chasing did not work out on first two starts this term and well beaten back over hurdles at Christmas, albeit on heavy going; wore these cheekpieces last April (career best) and on latest start, and the tongue-tie (worn on penultimate start) is back; opposable on nearly all evidence, except his 80-1 third in a Grade 1 novice at Punchestown (3m, yielding) last April.
