Fair Flat racer who has made the frame on all three hurdling starts, most recently when third in Ayr novice (2m, heavy) last month; could quite plausibly have improvement to come in handicaps; one to consider.

Failed to beat a rival in two starts here has a 3yo, but despite a record of 1-18 he has improved since and ended the last turf season running consistently well; returns from five months off with blinkers replacing cheekpieces and he has gone well fresh in the past; worth monitoring in the market.

Consistent in staying races on Tapeta this winter; hardly anything between him and Ney on their 2m run at Newcastle 18 days ago and had answered the slight question mark about this track when a close second over C&D the time before; looks good for another solid run.
