Completed a hat-trick when finding plenty to score by 6L at Cheltenham (2m5f, good) in May 2018; off since, and now in the care of Will Ramsay.
Couldn't quite reel in the winner Coo Star Sivola when beaten a neck in the Ultima Handicap Chase (3m1f, heavy) at Cheltenham in March; pulled up in the Grand National thereafter; made a modest return from wind surgery at Warwick (7/4f) in January.
Nose winner of this race on heavy ground in 2018 (gamely held off Cultram Abbey); finished 12th of 24 to Pacha Du Polder in the Cheltenham Foxhunters' thereafter, and also completed in the Aintree version (ninth of 21 to Balnaslow).
A welcome winner for this trainer when back to winning ways in the Men's Open at Friars Haugh recently (is now qualified for the Aintree Foxhunters'); has more on his plate back under rules in a competitive race.
