Won off a reduced mark over C&D (soft) in April when in a new headgear combination (tongue-tie/hood) that was retained when he finished third off this 7lb higher mark the following month (good); just the tongue-tie worn this time but he has had wind surgery and this mark might yet be okay.

Didn't have much to show for first five starts over hurdles but recorded an unlikely success at Southwell this month, coming from a long way off the pace to score readily; up 7lb and hard to discount now he's found form.
