Placed in Kelso bumper last spring; showed nothing more than minor promise in his three qualifying runs over hurdles there (2m, soft/heavy) and his tendency to race too freely remains a worry but he has a lowly mark for this handicap debut and is a possible improver.

Progressing in leaps and bounds, notching his third win from just five attempts over hurdles when storming clear of Ginger Mail in the Morebattle at Kelso (2m, good to soft; has won on heavy) seven weeks ago; a big rise in the weights is fully justified and it's unlikely we've seen the best of him yet; like his half-brother, the useful chaser Cracking Destiny, he's an excellent advertisement for the skills of his trainer.

Has a solid profile and won by a neck in six-runner Class 3 over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago on his second handicap start; he also kept on nicely when second in a novice over Carlisle's stiff 2m1f (good to soft) in December and could prove well suited by this big-field handicap scenario and expected strong pace; his half-brother Cracking Destiny evolved into a useful performer for the yard and this 5yo is open to further progress; interesting.
