Placed over C&D (heavy) in October and ended 2023 with two good Tapeta runs (7f/1m) but has not really fired on any of three starts this year, most recently when midfield in C&D race won by Highfield Viking eight days ago.

Yet to get his head in front but he wasn't discredited when sixth of ten in 1m Doncaster handicap 15 days ago; cheekpieces go on now and he's one to consider off a falling mark.
