Joined this top stable after wide-margin Irish point win in Fenruary 2022; weakened into well-held third after racing too freely here (2m3f, good to soft) on hurdle debut in December and was pulled up over C&D when upped in trip in February but has a tongue-tie fitted today and it would be foolish to write him off at this stage.

Seemed to excel himself when second of three from a long way out of the handicap at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month but was grossly flattered by his proximity to idling winner and the form looks somewhat dubious; soundly beaten off correct mark since; others preferred.

24lb out of the weights when running surprisingly well at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last week, though only three ran and the chances are the bare form flatters him; this should confirm one way or another, but he's 19lb lower this time so has to be taken seriously.
