Made sustained progress over hurdles in the second half of last year, notching consecutive wins at Bellwestown, Listowel and Punchestown before signing off with an excellent run in defeat; went up 25lb in total, but further improvement could not be ruled out; last week's reappearance on the Flat was promising and should have advanced his fitness.
