Much improved this spring with step up in trip, winning Tipperary maiden and bolted home in Naas rated contest over 1m2f; quite tame effort however in Leopardstown Listed over this trip last time after setting a steady pace; return to easier ground should suit but questions to answer at this level now.

Behind stablemate Lark In The Mornin on hurdle debut, before taking a winnable maiden at Cork (soft to heavy); ended up a remote fourth next time in a Grade 2 at Chepstow (soft) and jumping doesn't come easy to him; there's no obvious significance in the return of cheekpieces (worn once on the Flat when third).
