Seriously progressive with cheekpieces on AW Flat this February-April, staying 2m well; last seen finishing down the field at Royal Ascot; uncompetitive in his two handicaps over hurdles but he's a maiden winner and still lightly raced in this scene; potentially on a very good mark; tongue-tie joins the cheekpieces that worked well for him on the Flat.
