Useful German Flat winner (1m4f/1m2f) in 2022; hurdling for this yard on last four starts, with 2m2f and 2m6f wins at Newton Abbot on first two occasions; better form taking minor honours in the mud in handicaps both starts since, latterly at Cheltenham (2m5f); needs extra but cheekpieces (tried two and three starts back) return and there's a big rethink on his trip.

Useful German Flat winner (1m4f/1m2f) in 2022; three hurdle races for this yard at Newton Abbot, with two wins (2m2f and 2m6f) before good third on heavy ground on handicap hurdle debut; wore cheekpieces last two starts; needs a good deal better, including as he's 4lb out of the handicap, but Flat form gives some hope.
