0-10 on the Flat since his winning 2yo debut but showed some fairly useful form at up to 2m for David O'Meara this year; changed hands for 21,000gns in September and has a major role to play if he takes to hurdling at the first attempt; visor removed after one use.

Fair Flat form at 1m2f-2m last year; won a five-runner Catterick maiden (2m3f, soft) in December on second start over hurdles, but was disappointing on heavy ground at Southwell six weeks ago; wore cheekpieces for those last two starts; good shout if that latest run is forgiven.

Won four-runner Fontwell bumper in April 2022 and was a long way clear of the third when second here in February (again on good ground); those exploits give him good each-way claims here but his final bumper run was very disappointing and he was pulled up when switched to hurdles last month.
