Got off the mark at Southwell in February and back in top form on last two starts when second at Leicester (again under Laura Pearson) and winning an amateurs' race at Carlisle, all over 1m3f or 1m4f; has 5lb penalty but the ground may pose the biggest question, as his only run on softer than good was low-level form early in career.
