Hooded when scoring by a head on debut for this trainer at Wincanton (1m7f+, good) - today's rival Tiffin Top a further 2¼L back in third; penalised for that success; no issues at all with quick ground in the USA (Flat).
Hard puller, and that is in truth thwarting his overall career development; demonstrated those usual traits when getting off the mark over hurdles at Huntingdon (2m, good) on his penultimate start - main rival beaten when suffering a fatal injury.
Keen; placed on both previous starts over C&D (good), including when beaten by a neck here seven-days ago; 4lb better off with Highly Prized for 2½L at Wincanton (penultimate).
Modest on the Flat (46-rated); started at odds of 250/1 when finishing a well beaten tenth of 13 on hurdles bow at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft); booked for fourth place with a clear round.
