0-6 in points for Clive Boultbee-Brooks; displayed significant ability in that sphere, perhaps most notably when second of 16 in Larkhill maiden in February, but is probably best watched on this rules debut; changed hands for £3,000 last month; tongue-tie added.

Pushed a Paul Nicholls horse close in a bumper back in 2021 and the winner is now rated 19lb higher; therefore, this low-mileage 8yo is interesting on handicap debut after shaping better with a keeping-on fourth in a 2m maiden at Chepstow; with his pointing background, returning to further should be a good thing.
