13:05 Lingfield Mon 13 January 2020
No match for the 2-13f Lisp (Alan King) on chasing debut, but unbeaten in two subsequent starts over fences (2m2f-2m4f, heavy); 6lb higher than when keeping on strongly to beat Templier by 4½L at Fontwell on Boxing Day.
Rediscovered the winning formula at Ffos Las (2m, soft) on his penultimate start; held off a similar (revised) mark at Leicester subsequently; others make more appeal.
Isn't the most consistent, although he does appreciate hock deep ground with all six hurdles wins coming on soft/heavy (at 2m); 0-6 over fences - was a creditable second to Dorking Cock at Chepstow (2m, heavy) last week.
A regular around the south coast venues (Fontwell, Plumpton and Lingfield); was winning for the second time here (2m4f) when produced from off the pace to beat Shanahan's Turn and Private Malone; struggled (third) in a Class 2 handicap latest.
