Form & Verdict

Flat winner over 1m2f on good ground for James Fanshawe in 2022; encouraging hurdles debut at Listowel in September but didn't back that up twice afterwards; back from winter break and may be of more interest in handicaps.

Form so far entirely on soft/heavy, shaping well over 2m at Limerick and again latest in ordinary 2m2f Cork maiden last month, making much of running when second to an easy winner; jumping still lacks fluency but should be thereabouts.
