Ex-Irish; maiden after 20 starts and didn't show a great deal in points this spring; placed over hurdles in 2021 but looks to have enough to prove on British debut although yard has made positive start to the season.

Good-ground bumper winner who was runner-up in a Ffos Las maiden (2m, good) in May but he's not gone on from that in two runs since; ran respectably in a Ffos Las handicap (fourth of ten) in August but he needs more back from a short break and this return to soft ground is a concern.
