Second of 17 off 3lb higher on handicap debut at Doncaster (2m, good) in January; subsequent efforts have been disappointing, including with a tongue-tie added at Plumpton (2m, good) last month; however, with his pedigree suggesting this longer trip will suit, he's worth considering with cheekpieces added.
