Can take a strong hold and races prominently; made all in a Perth maiden (2m, good) but tailed off here next time in a handicap and looked on the retreat when taking a heavy fall three out at Wetherby (again on soft); return to drier conditions does look in his favour but he needs to get back on track.

Made all with 3l to spare in a maiden at Perth (2m, good) in May and that RPR suggests he could be on a fair mark; quiet on handicap debut last month (soft) and may need drier ground but the hood could help matters.

Better of two attempts over hurdles when sixth at Ayr on debut in February; enters the argument on that (race has thrown up several subsequent winners) but shade disappointing at Haydock since, which poses a question.
