Promise as a 2yo and he made a winning return to action at Thirsk 16 days ago (7f, heavy; first run after a gelding operation); 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Won on nursery debut at Pontefract (6f, good) in July and again strong at the finish when following up there (6f, good to soft) ten days later; merely mid-division at York (7f) latest but that was his first encounter with fast ground and he retains potential; one to be interested in now up in trip.
