Not far away in a couple of good-ground bumpers at Worcester during the summer; the form carries some substance and he has a bit of experience behind him now.

Placed in his first two bumpers before battling well to win here (2m, soft) on his return last month; out of a half-sister to a fairly useful jumps winner (2m2f/2m3f) and he should have a future in this sphere; needs close look on hurdling debut.
