Second in his Irish maiden point in April; tailed off on hurdle debut but, with tongue-tie removed, he performed vastly better when always-prominent second of 13 at 33-1 in novice at Warwick (2m3f, soft) last month; better is probably needed but he's in each-way calculations.

Runner-up on the last two of his five Irish points, short-headed on latest; bought for £38,000 in April and coming from the rear into third of 17 in novice hurdle at Warwick (2m, soft; 25-1) last month was a good start to his career under rules; looks sure to stay; a leading contender.

Bought for £160,000 soon after his second on Irish point debut (yielding ground) in May; second favourite, prominent long way in bumper at Chepstow (2m, heavy) last month but faded to be 15l fifth of six; that still showed significant ability and he could build markedly on that display.

Third in an Irish point and soft-ground bumper at Warwick in May; 6-1 but floundered from three out when pulled up in maiden hurdle at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October, after which it was found that he'd been struck into and had irregular heartbeat; the bumper run means he's not ruled out.
