Sole win in 25 races was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; this season's first two starts for new yard were his best efforts for a while, but his placings behind runaway winners at Sandown on last two outings do not read so well; not proven beyond 2m1f and unraced over this far; acts on soft.
