Battled well to make winning seasonal/hurdle debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October and has performed commendably against smart opposition on both subsequent appearances, more recently when fifth in Grade 1 Challow at Newbury (2m4f, soft) in December; leading contender.

Runner-up in Listed bumper here (good) in February and took well to hurdling when scoring in a big field at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October; the runner-up gave that latest form a boost when going one better next time; open to improvement and unlikely to be far away.
