Steadily progressive and showed that stamina was his strong suit when winning at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in November; 5lb higher, but the runner-up has won since and he's a major player under likely similar conditions with further improvement on the cards.

Unable to get competitive in points and it's been the same story on his four hurdle starts; however, there's some potential in his pedigree and a market move would be very interesting, now handicapping off a basement mark in first-time cheekpieces and with Gavin Sheehan booked.
