Twice well held in bumpers after a successful debut but bred to make a jumper and he ran a nice first race over hurdles behind a respected rival at Taunton (beaten 2l; soft); faces another one here but should run well.

Flat trainer doesn't have many bumper runners and this Flat-bred 4yo came home strongly to win with a bit in hand at Doncaster (2m, good); beat Caustic, who was a similar distance behind Kel Du Large the time before; softer conditions this time are a nagging cause for concern (Ludlow was good to soft on debut).
