Relished the step up in trip when comfortably getting off the mark at Fontwell (2m3f, good) last month. Goes up further in trip today and has found an excellent opportunity to defy the penalty here and win again. Major player.
Failed to impress in point-to-points (pulled-up on four of his six starts and well-beaten on the others). Beaten an long way with some slow jumps on rules debut last time. Cheekpieces added but major improvement needed.
Struggled on all three hurdles starts so far over a variety of trips. Ran over two miles last time and that didn't work. Back up in trip here and sure leading handler will get to the bottom of him eventually.
Failed to win in point-to-points and was sent off at 50/1 for hurdling debut at Worcester (2m4f, good) last month. Actually ran with real credit there to finish fourth of 11 and has potential to do better.
