He was disappointing last year and had a few niggly problems so we left him off for a while. It was probably a blessing in disguise. He came on from his first run back and he's strengthened up a lot. He'll make a nice chaser in time but keeping him in one piece is the main thing. Mrs Gillian Callaghan, trainer
