C&D maiden winner but has proved expensive to follow at times in handicaps, including over C&D a fortnight ago when decent third, having every chance; should be thereabouts but possible stronger finishers here.

Very lightly raced and showed what he was capable of when landing a very competitive novice handicap here at Christmas; 12lb penalty to contend with but very unlikely that we have seen the best of him.
