Went close in a maiden hurdle at Roscommon before a big career best when landing a Downpatrick maiden hurdle by 13l; that form looks okay and more to come with a workable opening mark.

Successful twice (2m2f/2m) on soft ground in the autumn; good third in a couple of handicaps at Leopardstown (2m4f/3m) since and the latest effort shows he's effective in a huge field; ties in with Waterford Whispers on the penultimate piece of form; consistent and steadily progressive, so looks set for another big run.
