T: Paul Nicholls

Won 2m4f Grade 1 Challow Hurdle during last year's festive period; failed to justify favouritism at the spring festivals but had wind surgery prior to his successful chase debut at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) and that was impressive in many ways; unraced over this far under rules but with his pointing background he should stay well; still unexposed and held in the highest regard by a trainer who has won this five times.

Below-par favourite in Grade 1 novice hurdles at the Cheltenham and Aintree festivals but may well benefit from the subsequent wind surgery and he starts this campaign as a major prospect for novice chases; earlier progress culminated in an easy win in the Challow here (2m4f, soft; Grade 1) and that form has worked out well; point winner; leading player.

Impressive in the Challow at Newbury (2m4f, soft), continuing his good progress; disappointing favourite in the Ballymore but his trainer's most notable Challow winners, Denman and Bravemansgame, also failed to land that race and they turned out fine; looked very smart before the Cheltenham flop and remains of strong interest.

Out of a French Grade 3 hurdle winner and was bought for big money after Irish point win in 2021; made all in C&D Grade 2 on good ground in November and proved he's fully effective on soft when coasting up the run-in for very comfortable success in Grade 1 Challow at Newbury (2m4f) in December; leading contender.
