Big step forward when winning comfortably at Ballinrobe (1m7f, soft) in April on his second start, and he was sold out of Sam Curling's yard for 100,000euros later that month; it wasn't a great race he won but he brings potential to his British debut and is not ruled out.

Third and fifth in two points; runner-up in a soft-ground bumper at Ballinrobe last April on his final run in Ireland; mixed messages as to the strength of that form as, while the easy winner has finished fourth in a hot Ascot bumper for Harry Fry, the close third is looking limited for Gordon Elliott; has some experience though and he's of interest.
