took keen hold, midfield, not fluent 5th, pushed along and still plenty to do before 3 out, ridden after 3 out, went fourth after 2 out, kept on strongly run-in, slightly hampered towards finish, nearest finish

Got loose beforehand but impressed on debut in Taunton bumper (2m, soft) in March; it's disconcerting that he unseated at the first flight on his hurdle debut at Bangor last Tuesday (slowed dramatically and jumped badly left) but could be a leading contender if he gets his jumping right.
