Flat runs last autumn included the biggest win of his career (front-running at 2m on soft); big step up in trip for the Carlisle qualifier (3m1f, good to soft) in December and third of eight there was clearly his best result over hurdles for 15 months, albeit subsiding by 12l didn't persuade that he's the strongest stayer; off since and others are more persuasive.
