Useful on the Flat in his prime and won three times over hurdles; jumped left throughout and finished last of four when favourite for stable/chase debut at Fontwell (2m5f, good to soft) in November; may yet come good for Venetia Williams but combination of soft ground and a right-handed track doesn't look ideal today.
