Won a C&D maiden claimer at the start of the winter and a 7f handicap success in October; has held his form well since and wasn't beaten far in a C&D claimer last week but has a bit to do to reverse form with Prince Of Abington from that race; new yard.

Made hay last year when winning six races for James McAuley on various types of ground; yet to hit form this campaign, recent Navan run slightly more encouraging; down 7lb from start of season so could be approaching a competitive mark.

Dual course winner; all three wins have come at the minimum trip but ran a belter when beaten 1l over C&D in December and hit the frame again when runner-up on his penultimate start; lost position early over the minimum here three weeks ago but lurks on a good mark; one to be interested in.
