Still a maiden but should have a race in her off this mark on her form last winter and she ran perfectly respectably on her return from a break at Newton Abbot last month (2m1f, good); one of the better options.

Most recent win in October 2019; has had a few defeats off similar marks in the last 12 months and although he went close on debut for this yard in July he hasn't looked a sure thing to be ahead of the handicapper since.

Seven-time hurdle winner, most recently in this race a year ago; lost his way a bit afterwards and, following a layoff, was no match for the easy winner when second of five in this grade at Fakenham (2m, good) three weeks ago; however, still makes more appeal than most of these.

Ought to have another race in him on the form of his third in a fair Perth handicap in June (2m, good) when 6lb higher; recent chase defeats might not have had the best effect on him but still considered with refitted blinkers replacing cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Quite useful at about 1m on the Flat as 2yo but career littered with absences since; minor form in maiden/novice hurdles two winters ago and was well held on return from another layoff on the AW last month but just possible he has a good run in him now handicapping on good ground.
