Both wins have been on good to soft (juvenile events at Catterick and Southwell) and was only fourth of six when 4-9 on soft on previous run here in January (1m7f, pulled hard); however, came out second best of the English when tenth in the Boodles last time (heavy); a chance.

Won 1m2f maiden (soft) in Ireland last July for Jim Bolger, from five Flat starts; odds on for both hurdle starts for new yard, scoring by a wide margin at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft) but failing to build on that when fourth for 7lb claimer at Musselburgh (soft; raced freely); the latter was in cheekpieces, as was second Flat start; should still have potential.
