Won on the Flat for Roger Varian in June and followed up in first-time cheekpieces on stable debut in August (1m4f, good; RPR 79); looks a good candidate for hurdling; headgear left off today.

Became very disappointing over hurdles last season and, after running well to a point, faded out of contention on last month's chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good; first-time blinkers; well backed); today's drop back in trip could be a good move but his overall profile is not convincing.

Won a juvenile hurdle here (2m1f, good to soft) in October 2021 but he's failed to get competitive this season and has been beaten 34l or more in his last three starts; has dropped a long way in the weights but he needs a major revival on this switch to chasing; first-time blinkers.

Won a juvenile hurdle at Fontwell in October 2021 and has dropped down the weights, but he's failed to get competitive in his seven runs this season, with and without cheekpieces, and it's hard to be confident today.

Modest maiden on the Flat but one of two to finish well clear of the others when causing 16-1 surprise over C&D (good) on last month's hurdle debut; probably bumped into a useful one when well-held second at Plumpton (2m1f, good) 12 days ago; strong contender if suited by the forecast slower ground here.

Form & Verdict

Showed some fair form at up to 8.3f on the Flat for Richard Hannon but hasn't fired on her two starts for Milton Harris and strike-rate now stands at 0-14; needs to prove her stamina on today's hurdling debut and is not the percentage call; tongue-tie fitted.

Unraced on the Flat; built upon promising hurdle debut when winning by a neck at Worcester (2m, good) last month; probably needs to improve again to overcome his penalty here but has obvious potential.

2m hurdle winner (good) when with Olly Murphy; competitive on his first two starts for this trainer at Worcester and Leicester (both 2m chases, good); didn't appear to get home back over hurdles at Doncaster (2m3f, good) latest; drops 2lb and returns to chasing with stamina still to prove.

Won a juvenile hurdle in 2021 (2m, good) and has run pretty well for this yard on first two chase starts, most recently staying on for second of four at Leicester (2m, good); the step up in trip could be a positive now back over hurdles and there's every chance he'll be thereabouts.

Displayed promise on his two AW starts for Brian Meehan in late 2020 (1m/7f) but was 63l behind Keepyourdreamsbig after racing too freely on recent stable/hurdle debut at Worcester (2m, good); might settle better in first-time hood today but may need to gather a bit more experience in this sphere.
