Progressing well since upped in trip, winning Killarney novice and narrowly beaten in C&D novice before career-best in similar (Listed) contest last month, outjumping What Path two out and seeing it out well from the last; 4lb worse off with that rival here but possibly as the greater scope for improvement.
