Won soft-ground Warwick bumper by 9l on debut last March and was very respectable sixth of 15 at Cheltenham (good to soft) in October; began hurdling career with two low-key runs towards end of last year, but was only beaten about 18l when sixth of 18 at Newbury (2m, soft) on latter occasion; still has potential.

Bought for £160,000 soon after his second on Irish point debut last May; down the field in two runs under rules since November but he rallied when a respectable fourth on his hurdling debut at Bangor (2m3f, soft) last month; should benefit from that experience and he's open to progress over this longer trip.

Bought for £160,000 soon after his second on Irish point debut (yielding ground) in May; second favourite, prominent long way in bumper at Chepstow (2m, heavy) last month but faded to be 15l fifth of six; that still showed significant ability and he could build markedly on that display.
