Form & Verdict

Well held when third on last month's hurdle debut at Bangor (2m3f, good) and it's hard to gauge what he achieved when second of three behind long-odds-on winner at Cartmel (2m6f, good) a fortnight later; however, he makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark and is unexposed.

Not firing on all cylinders this season but rewarded persistent Sean Bowen ride when staying on well to exploit much reduced mark at Cartmel (3m1f, soft) two weeks ago; would appeal more on slower ground but remains well handicapped on older form; pulled up in early stages at Southwell on Thursday after saddle slipped.

Late in the day for this 9yo to make his chase debut but he's been in good form over hurdles of late, winning at Ayr (3m, good) then a good second at Newcastle (2m7f, good); strong claims in this weak race if transferring that ability to fences at first attempt; might not want soft ground.
