Made it 3-8 over hurdles when scoring at Catterick (2m3f, heavy) in February; creditable third over 2m5f here (soft) next time but he didn't fire on his return visit three weeks ago; cheekpices are now added on this drop back in grade but he needs more progress.

Won Kelso maiden (2m5f, good) last month on fourth attempt over hurdles and followed up in a handicap over this C&D (good); this unexposed 6yo could continue to progress and is a likely player provided conditions suit (unproven on a slow surface).
