Showed promise on the first of 2 starts in bumpers last season and made a winning start over hurdles at Kempton after 8 months off despite some novicey jumping late on. More needed under a penalty.

Didn't set the world alight in a pair of bumpers but made a winning start over hurdles after 6 months off at Hexham and even better form when third under a penalty at Bangor. Sets a clear standard.
