Sent chasing this season; let down by his jumping on penultimate start but switching from cheekpieces to blinkers worked on latest, in which he easily won from the front in a six-runner handicap at Kempton (3m, soft) despite two mistakes; up 9lb, with another 2lb out of the handicap, but it's hard to pin down just how much he had in the tank in that breakthrough win.
