Bumper winner who was all out to get off the mark over hurdles at Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) last time but the front two were miles clear and the runner-up appeared strongly fancied for a novice handicap at Lingfield last week only to depart mid-race; still has a lot to find in this company and James Bowen (aboard last time) rides the yard's other one.

Not disgraced in two bumpers last spring but showed no significant promise when a big-priced outsider for three novice/maiden hurdles in the autumn; cheekpieces on for handicap debut; needs to take a big step forward.
