More to prove on softer than good, although close third in a maiden hurdle on testing ground; hurdles win in May before comfortably justifying favouritism at Fairyhouse in June on first Flat run for current stable; followed up by a neck at Newbury (again over an extended 1m5f on good) four weeks ago; stays 1m6f and this progressive 4yo is far from ruled out by 3lb rise.
