Started off last season in terrific form, bolting up on heavy ground over 1m2f at Navan after finishing second to Paddington in the Madrid Handicap; overall profile shows that he is hard to win with, but he is suited by heavy ground; recent Leopardstown third was encouraging, but fourth-placed Givemehoperosa could turn the tables.
