Delivered on promise shown in Ireland when winning 9.4f Wolverhampton nursery on stable debut in October; subsequent defeat in good Kempton novice is not viewed harshly but he's a bit more exposed than some of these; gelded in November; blinkers (worn once in Ireland) refitted.

Consistent since blinkers went on and will be 3lb higher from tomorrow for last Monday's Kempton near-miss (one of three to come away despite edging left); can miss the break and pull hard but could well get this run to suit, so needs considering.
