Frustrating sort at two and three when trained by Donnacha O'Brien, failed to prosper as a juvenile hurdler for Tom Cooper after showing initial promise; consistent on the Flat for this stable last year; arguably best display when second in a 1m5f maiden at Down Royal and third in a 2m1f handicap at Killarney in July; may again find a couple too good after a break.
