Form & Verdict
Well beaten when making handicap debut on heavy ground in February but remains very unexposed under rules, and it's worth remembering that last year's 15l Irish point win was recorded on good ground.

Not an instant success over hurdles but struck form with wins at Plumpton and Wincanton (both 2m4f, good) last month; would prefer the rain to stay away here but is probably still on the upgrade; likely contender.

Safely held here on last month's handicap debut (2m, soft) but, having dropped to this grade, fared better when sixth of 14 at Market Rasen (2m2f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; moves up in trip again today; open to further progress.
