Won an Irish point and 2m1f Fontwell maiden hurdle; creditable second over about 2m4f on next two starts, both on soft or heavy, but pulled up when 6-1 for handicap/seasonal debut at Aintree (3m; dropped away after three out) four weeks ago; it will be interesting to see if his backers return.

Didn't really take to chasing and when back over hurdles at Wincanton (2m5f) he perhaps found the heavy ground against him; won on good and good to soft over 2m4f last season and he probably stays 3m; nothing wrong with his mark.

Dual hurdle winner at Ffos Las (2m4f, good to soft/good) towards end of last season, latterly off today's mark; lacked fluency and was safely held in two chases in the autumn but ought to be seen to better effect now back over hurdles; unraced on heavy ground but handles soft well.
