2-2 since switched to handicaps, the wins gained at Carlisle (2m3f, soft) and over C&D (good to soft) in March; moves up in grade for today's seasonal debut but has scope for further progress if fully tuned up.

Form & Verdict

Unlucky to slip up on a bend at Kelso last month but his third at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) two starts ago was a good effort, and a subsequent 3lb drop puts him 2lb below the mark off which he won this race in 2020; won't mind what the weather does; good chance.

Dual C&D winner this season (soft/good), and was pipped only in final stride after looking very likely to add a third C&D success one month ago; raised another 3lb for that but can make his presence felt again.

Form & Verdict

In career-best hurdle form at Perth this season, collecting three 3m wins there; seems very versatile regarding ground but has climbed to a tough mark and may not be seen to the same effect on this very different track.

Promising novice hurdler for Henry Oliver during 2018-19 season but, following a long absence, was safely held in four handicaps for new stable in late 2020; returns from another layoff today; considered only if lively in the betting.

Seemingly revitalised by change of headgear when winning in first-time cheekpieces at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in March but well beaten when back up to 3m a few weeks later and not an easy one to predict on this first start for 146 days.
