Kept on pretty well for second at Southwell (3m, good to soft) in February, his third start for Mike Sowersby, but was no match for the wide-margin winner there and his overall profile is not that appealing.

Bumper debut last year was not devoid of promise; hard to make any sort of case from his three hurdles efforts but improvement is possible now handicapping.
