Form & Verdict

Flat-bred 4yo who delivered on promise shown in bumpers when winning on last month's hurdle debut at Bangor (2m3f, good; first-time hood); will probably need to better that performance to defy his penalty here but has obvious potential to do so.

Last season fizzled out and he was about 18l behind Rubaud when eighth in Scottish Champion Hurdle in April, but he began that campaign with a good handicap win at Newbury (2m, good) last November and has a major role to play if back on song here; had another wind op (his third) in July.

8lb higher than when second to the thrown-in State Man in last year's County Hurdle (Colonel Mustard third); this season started well but his remote third in the Grade 2 Kingwell was underwhelming and so too his midfield finish when having another crack at the County (following wind surgery and tongue-tied); now on a recovery mission but too classy to discount.

Form & Verdict

Displayed considerable improvement and caused 80-1 shock at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft) in March, after which he changed hands for £23,000; has penalty to shoulder here and needs to prove he can cope with the forecast quicker ground but it will be interesting to see what Samuel Drinkwater can do with him.

Made reasonably encouraging rules debut when midfield in good-ground Southwell bumper in May but makes hurdling debut after a four-month break and needs to take a good step forward.

0-11 and peak rating comes from a 2m7f chase in January 2022; not seen again until two handicap hurdles this May/June, in which he was beaten 28l but there was promise in the second of those (2m7f here; led three out) and he's unraced over a trip this short since 2020; trainer has had six wins and six seconds from 18 starts when teaming up with Sean Bowen.
