Made all at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) last October and ran well for a long way before falling at the last at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) on Boxing Day; tongue-tie given a go, but has plenty on from 9lb wrong after 133 days off; stable also runs Uncle Arthur.

Sole win in 28 starts under rules came in a Stratford selling hurdle (2m, good; first-time tongue-tie) a year ago; was returning from seven months off when pulled up in an amateur riders' event at Wincanton (2m4f, good) 16 days ago and needs to step up from that.

Winning hurdler/chaser in Ireland for Enda Bolger; effectively returning from 601 days off in March; not completely out of it when unseating in a Class 2 handicap over fences at Chepstow (2m, soft) last month; interesting back over hurdles in this modest company.

Four-time winner over hurdles/fences in France, but having been off for 15 months he has been pulled up in all three starts over fences for this yard (underwent wind surgery before latest outing); blinkers join the tongue-tie back over hurdles and only of interest if backed.
