Well held on hurdles debut over C&D recently and likely to have stamina doubts in this sphere (best up to 7.5f on Flat, and only modest, too).

Fairly useful maiden on Flat at 3 yrs (stays 1½m). Sold from Andrew Balding only 1,000 gns since last seen but no surprise if he were up to making an impact in this sphere for new yard.
