Has run in just one Irish point, a bumper and two novice hurdles; made most and kept on well when beaten a neck in six-runner race at Leicester (1m7f, heavy) latest; that suggested he'd be suited by further and there should be enough stamina in the pedigree, so he's one to note on handicap debut.

Promising fourth on Irish point debut last February (yielding to soft) and built upon his encouraging seasonal/bumper debut (soft) when keeping-on fourth over hurdles at Carlisle (2m1f, good to soft) last month; almost certainly has more to offer and features prominently in calculations.
