Quite useful at 1m4f on the Flat, winning twice; chased home good horses, including Liari, in his first two hurdle races (good to soft) but progress hit a pothole when turned over at long odds-on at Market Rasen and soft ground (which he never encountered in ten Flat starts) was perhaps a factor; others preferred.
