Had shown little over fences before a much improved effort when stepped up in trip at Thurles when last seen (beaten 2l); up 2lb and a slight concern he's been off since February, although has run okay when fresh before.

Placed several times over fences before getting off the mark with wide-margin success in a Tramore beginners' event in August; typically a front-runner, failed to sustain his effort in a 2m4f handicap at Gowran in September; did well under the same tactics when third in a rated contest at Punchestown last time
