Two near-misses in maidens before tackling a couple of Graded races; encouraging that he could raise his game to win a Naas rated hurdle (by 5l on heavy; beat Bright Legend) that's remarkably produced four of the last five winners of the Boodles; this has been the plan ever since and something may have clicked.
