Runner-up on debut in Irish maiden point (3m, soft) in February 2022 and, following £125,000 sale, he won a hot little bumper at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) this March; looks to have a very bright future for his top trainer, who has won two of the last four runnings of this race.

Two-time bumper winner (2m/1m7f, good to soft/good) who also showed some promise in that sphere on soft ground; 11l sixth of nine on last month's hurdle debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) but that was in a fair maiden and she's open to improvement in the jumping department; not ruled out.
