Seemingly perked up by change of headgear when scoring in first-time blinkers at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) in April; still very well handicapped on older form but was pulled up (albeit having made a bad jumping error) last month and has become very unreliable.

Below par the last twice and particularly disappointing at Taunton last month when making it 0-10; however, perhaps the first-time hood will help and a case can be made judged on his close third at Doncaster (2m, good) last November; also effective on soft ground.
