Ten-race maiden but he's unexposed over fences and shaped with promise when a front-running third in a Bangor handicap (2m1f, heavy) on his recent stable debut; this return to less testing ground looks a positive and he has possibilities if he can build on that last run; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.
