Two first-three finishes from 18 starts (a win and a second; both over 5f) demonstrates the general patchiness of his CV; four outings at 6f have yielded three defeats by an aggregate 23 lengths and one fourth beaten just over a length which came 13 months ago; can't be written off totally but his profile is mostly uninspiring.
