Won on debut in bumper at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in December 2022 and changed hands for £190,000 the following month (remained with Olly Murphy); only fourth when favourite on hurdle debut at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in November, when jumping to the right on occasions, but he could take plenty of benefit from that experience and may still be a bright prospect.

Two-time Flat winner (at about 1m6f) who was a fair sixth on last month's hurdle and stable debut at Ayr (2m, soft); she was behind a couple of these and a longer trip may be preferable, but there's scope for improvement with her jumping and she has each-way possibilities.
