Second in a point last November; winner Busty Boy captured two more points and is now a winning chaser in Britain; beat subsequent hurdle winners Extrapolation and Mint Boy in a bumper at Navan in February; set a very tough task on his hurdling debut in a Grade 2 contest at Fairyhouse; jumping was untidy then, still rates a good prospect.
