Well beaten in a chase on stable debut in October but he won back over hurdles at Huntingdon and Fakenham (both at 2m7f on good) in next two starts; didn't fire in his hat-trick bid at Stratford last month but a return to patient tactics may have backfired and he's capable of bouncing back; not ruled out.

His third on returning from a break at Wincanton was remote (over 3m on heavy) and he's now 0-13 as a hurdler; was brought down early at Ascot when the return to drier ground was presumably expected to suit given his prominence in the betting (13-2).
