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).

Has a useful Flat pedigree and made a pleasing debut when 3l second of 15 at Exeter (1m5f, good to soft; 100-30) in October, keeping on well; should prove at least as effective over today's longer distance; now fitted with a tongue-strap; high on the list.

Placed in two bumpers and has done well since switched to the AW, finishing third of 12 at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) in a race not run to suit and beating Eleanor Cross by a short head at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) last month; now 6lb worse off, but that race may not have panned out ideally for him either; no surprise if he confirms the form.

Initially bought by Andrew Balding for 100,000gns as a yearling but didn't run for him; joined current yard for 27,000gns in July; closely related to 1m/1m2f winner King Of Clubs, half-brother to winners Garden Oasis (1m-1m2f) and Royal Mews (1m dirt/1m2f AW), all three of those siblings useful; interesting newcomer for a stable with a 15% strike-rate in bumpers.
