Beaten under a penalty on both runs since winning here (2m1f, good to soft) in March but he was a good second here (1m7f, good to soft) three weeks ago and there's every chance this trip will be within range; solid claims.

Modest third at Newcastle when last seen, taking record to 0-4; promising third to high-class Impaire Et Passe at Naas (2m3f, soft; hurdles debut) the time before and holds leading claims if back to that form.

Form figures in bumpers (1UP8) demonstrate that things have not gone swimmingly since his Ayr debut success; however, combination of wind surgery and switch to hurdles may prompt a turnaround.
