Form & Verdict
Ran quite well at Newcastle (1m, AW) and Ayr (1m2f, soft) in first two handicaps but his form slumped at Carlisle (1m, good) 25 days ago; record now stands at 0-7 and needs to resume his progress to make a serious impact.

Modest Flat form, scoring at Hamilton (1m) in September; no immediate promise on hurdling debut at Hexham last month; this race looks stronger.

Made it seventh time lucky on the Flat when scoring at Hamilton (8.3f, soft, raced freely) last month but that was in a Class 6 event; struggled on his only previous attempt in a bumper and is probably best watched in this decent race on his hurdling debut.

Revived in two runs for Jim Goldie, building on reappearance when winning (at the 27th attempt) 14-runner race over the extended 1m here (soft) 12 days ago, leading late on; should stay today's longer trip and may well follow up with William Buick a notable booking.

Won over C&D in June and several creditable efforts on fast and soft ground since but he couldn't pose a threat at Ayr last Friday; drops back in grade but he needs to step up again after that last run and others are more persuasive.

Virtually refused to race at Carlisle last month but besides that blip he's had a good season, including with a near miss at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) last Saturday; only 1lb higher here here and he has won over C&D in the past; leading contender.

Popped up in front once a year in recent campaigns but has already done so this term, taking a six-runner apprentice race at Carlisle (1m1f) on Friday under Gianluca Sanna; same mark today and lots of 2021 form also gives him a serious chance, but long time since he raced over this far.

His only win from 33 starts came over 1m2f but he coped with dropping to 6f when a strong-finishing second at Redcar last month; blindfold issues at the start and couldn't contend over C&D four weeks ago; everything will need to fall into place if he is to win.
