Pulled up after jumping poorly on chasing debut for Neil Mulholland in September but has made excellent progress over hurdles for new stable since, winning four times along the way; runner-up here (3m2f, soft) on latest outing three weeks ago and it will be interesting to see whether he can find some fluency on this second attempt over fences.
