Very much on the improve; would have landed a Limerick maiden hurdle at Christmas but for falling, has put that to rights since by winning a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle and bossing a 3m Grade 2 novice at Haydock; big step back in trip here for his chase debut but effective over at least 2m3f and likely to be hard to beat.
