Irish point winner who is 2-2 over hurdles after fairly comfortable wins on heavy ground at Newcastle; RPRs of 108 don't exactly leap off the page but he's heading in the right direction and rain is welcomed.

Won an Irish point and 2m1f Fontwell maiden hurdle; creditable second over about 2m4f on next two starts, both on soft or heavy, but pulled up when 6-1 for handicap/seasonal debut at Aintree (3m; dropped away after three out) four weeks ago; it will be interesting to see if his backers return.
