Would have beaten a subsequent winner with greater authority without late mistakes at Warwick (2m3f, soft) in November; 14-1 when beaten 17l by the smart Dysart Enos at Cheltenham where dropping back to 2m didn't seem to help; should pay his way in handicaps.

Second on debut, before winning at Warwick in a bumper in May and a 2m3f, soft-ground novice hurdle in November; 4-6 in a 13-runner race last time when he didn't take the last two flights fluently and did not score with the authority that seemed likely; runner-up won next time but this 4yo, who's bred to stay well, needs to find improvement.

Bought for £55,000 after easily winning a five-runner maiden point (2m4f, good) and wasn't overly pressed to make a successful bumper debut at Huntingdon (soft); Tristan Durrell rides again claiming 5lb; could well go in again despite the penalty.
