Won the second of two Irish point starts, in February, and bought for £75,000 soon after; mixed messages from the form but out of a dam who is a half-sister to several winners and he represents a yard that has plenty of success in bumpers; market should tell more.

His Plumpton debut second last December looks all the better after the winner of that race finished third in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham; only third at Chepstow (too free) since but that race has merit; stablemate of Bentley's Return and has to be on the shortlist.
