1-11 over hurdles, the win achieved over 2m4f at Sedgefield last October; faller when favourite at Clonmel in May; veterinary excuse offered at Down Royal in June; much more like it when second at Tramore ten days ago; chasing debut now off his revised hurdles mark of 94; market could be instructive.
