Point winner; winning debut in bumpers at Huntingdon in April and ran well, despite losing his unbeaten record, at Warwick the following month; strong claims on hurdling debut if he can transfer that ability.

Won at Worcester (2m, good) in September and third in Grade 2 at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October; had wind surgery soon after and has flopped when favourite in his two starts since; brings much the best hurdles form but now sports cheekpieces in revival bid.

Maintained his progress with a respectable third in the Grade 2 Persian War at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October; flopped when favourite on handicap debut at Kempton (2m; first run after wind surgery) last month but he's still unexposed and sets a good standard on his penultimate form; big player if he can bounce back, and this new trip should be within range.
