Won a beginners' at Fairyhouse in October before a novice chase success at Galway later that month; pulled up after a bad mistake behind Solness at Fairyhouse but back on track with a 1l defeat to The Folkes Tiara over C&D on St Stephen's Day; that looked like a warm race and he was closing on the winner all the way to the line; should be in the mix again.
