Six-race maiden but he showed some promise in bumpers and his best effort from three hurdle runs was a rallying fourth in a novice here (2m, good) last month; beaten 32l then but possible improver now handicapping.

It wasn't much of a race that he won at Warwick (2m, good) but he was even-money and did it readily; this looks stronger but highly likely to have a say.

Third here before finishing runner-up at Newton Abbot (again good) and the winner of that race has gone in again since; since left Fergal O'Brien and new trainer goes with a tongue-tie; should have some say.
