Took a while to get the hang of things but he's thriving now; signed off 2yo campaign with win at Naas (5f, good/yielding) and followed up at Windsor (5f, good) on Monday by 4l under Silvestre De Sousa; well treated under a penalty; may be open to further progress and high on the list once more.

A model of consistency over 5f and ran another fine race at Southwell when second of six three weeks ago; shaped well on good to soft ground three times last spring; should be in the thick of things again.

Ultra-consistent gelding who won a five-runner Southwell novice (5f, Tapeta) in March and has been placed in all seven of his other starts, including when running a handicap blot close at Thirsk (5f, soft) 13 days ago; up 1lb but still one of the likelier winners.

Poorly drawn when second at Chester (6f, good to soft) last September and gained compensation at Hamilton (5f, soft) two weeks later; now moves into handicaps and retains untapped potential; very interesting if fit after nearly seven months off.

Two juvenile wins, latest in Hamilton nursery (5f, good to soft) in September; possibly over the top when finishing last on final start; will need another personal best to make winning reappearance but it's possible.
