Safely held on last month's chasing debut but went clear on final circuit and won by 14l at Market Rasen (2m5f, good; several fences omitted) 18 days later; it's hard to know what to make of that form but he could easily have more improvement to come; raced mainly on good ground but once ran quite well on good to soft.
