Has run well in bumpers and ran respectably behind short-priced market leader on hurdle debut at Bangor (2m, soft); plenty of stamina in pedigree so longer trip should suit; contender.

Second in one of his bumpers and here on hurdle debut (2m, soft) in December, before going one better when upped to 2m4f at Sedgefield (good to soft; led run-in) on Boxing Day; should need further improvement to win this and now has 7lb claimer on board.

Runner-up in his last two Irish points and he's been placed in all three hurdle runs this winter; rallied well when a close third at Sedgefield (2m4f, good to soft; tongue-tie added) on Boxing Day and he has leading claims on that form; key player.

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.
