Irish point winner in February but he's finished down the field in Exeter bumper and a Fakenham maiden hurdle (2m4f, both on good) since; now drops back in trip and plenty of improvement is needed.

Showed a bit of promise in bumpers for Tom Weston at start of this year but was tailed off on stable debut in March and beat just one rival when switched to hurdling at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) last month; tongue-tie now added and he needs to show a lot more.

Just one win on the Flat but he was useful at up to 1m4f for Sir Michael Stoute; no joy on AW and over hurdles (2m, good) since changing hands for £25,000 in October but that latest run was after a break and he should have a future at this discipline; not ruled out.

Tailed off in his sole bumper but he shaped with some promise when fifth behind an odds-on winner on his hurdling debut at Chepstow (2m, good to soft) last month; should improve for that experience and he looks a key player in this weaker race.
