Form & Verdict

Bought for big money after Irish point win last February and created a pretty good impression in Newton Abbot bumper (heavy) on rules debut in October; slightly disappointing when well-held third here (2m, good to soft) on last month's hurdling debut but may fare better over today's longer trip and remains a good prospect.

Bettered inauspicious hurdling debut when readily winning a Fakenham maiden (2m4f, soft) by 16l last month; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he's open to further progress and warrants consideration.
