Point winner (3m, yielding) who was an encouraging fourth in his sole bumper (2m1f, heavy) before finishing runner-up on all three hurdle starts (2m3f/2m5f, good to soft), beaten just a neck most recently; leading claims.

Looked good when off the mark in 2m4f maiden at Southwell (good) last May and testing surfaces may not have been ideal in the autumn; wasn't far off his best form on handicap/yard debut over 2m5f (soft) here last month and the return to good ground can see improvement; respected.
