Useful Flat-racer who probably posted career-best performance when winning readily by 2l at Chester (1m4f, soft; RPR 99) two weeks ago; will be a danger to all if he takes well to hurdling.

Placed in two of his three Irish points and beaten under 10l in useful Hexham novice chase (2m, good) on stable debut in June; it may be unwise to accept that form at face value but he could have a part to play on today's hurdling debut.
