Third in his last three starts (has had only four) so he's building up some consistency; gives the impression that today's longer trip will benefit.

Never-dangerous fifth at Kempton (1m) in a race not run to suit and he then ran well to be a close fourth on his handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) after a wide trip; well bred and has more to offer.

Came closest to winning for the Charltons when runner-up at Leicester (1m2f) last June but lesser efforts on final starts for them; not yet achieved much over hurdles for new yard and stamina to prove back on Flat.
