Creditable third at Epsom (1m2f, good to firm) on handicap debut, before making all at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) and asserting final 1f at Glorious Goodwood (1m3f, good to soft); 1m4f looks manageable and 7lb rise may be too, given he was comfortably on top for both wins; steadily progressive.

Made a successful handicap debut at Haydock (1m, good) in April last year and placed in three consecutive starts off this mark on turf in the summer; ended the campaign on a quiet note, though, and his two AW efforts haven't been quite so hot; market may indicate what is expected after five months off.

Quite useful at 1m4f on the Flat, winning twice; chased home good horses, including Liari, in his first two hurdle races (good to soft) but progress hit a pothole when turned over at long odds-on at Market Rasen and soft ground (which he never encountered in ten Flat starts) was perhaps a factor; others preferred.

Fairly useful and consistent performer at up to 1m4f on Flat for James Ferguson; sold for 90,000gns before an encouraging show on hurdle debut at Kempton (2m, good to soft; 9-1) three weeks ago, keeping on well into second of six behind an impressive winner; worth a second look despite not being one of the top players on form.

Won two of his seven runs for James Fanshawe, namely a 1m novice on Lingfield's Polytrack and a 1m2f handicap (soft) at Nottingham in May; reportedly unsuited by racing wide when down the field over C&D in September (after which he was sold for 37,000gns); shouldn't have to worry about getting cover from stall 1; new headgear tried on stable debut.
