Displayed promise in points/bumpers before creditable second to progressive stablemate of Quaresome's on last month's hurdle debut at Kelso (2m2f, good); probably needs to improve to win this but has potential.

A five-timer last year included three hurdles and two chases; won again in this discipline at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in January before finishing alone in a match; can make mistakes (as was the case when below par last time) but there's no knocking his strike-rate.
