Form & Verdict

Flopped badly in Perth handicap this summer but, following a wind op, quickly got back on track when third in C&D novice last month; will be right in the thick of things with a similar performance today, and still has some scope for improvement.

10yo who isn't the force of old but ran some fair races over fences in the autumn, most recently third at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft); continues to edge down the weights and might not be far away if the return to hurdling isn't a problem (three wins in this sphere, which he last tackled in May 2022).

Nothing like the force of old but exploited some considerable help from the handicapper when scoring by 8l at Kelso (2m2f, good) in September; also suited by this C&D and, assuming her confidence has not been dented by last month's heavy fall, she can make her presence felt.

Returned from long absence with 40-1 hurdle win at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) in January and followed up in AW bumper soon afterwards; not seen since lesser effort in March but runs this track well and can evidently go well when fresh; cheekpieces refitted.

Form & Verdict

Much better known as a chaser now and absent since running over the big Aintree fences in April; probably on workable mark for first hurdle start since 2018 but will perhaps be of greater interest when back over fences with this run under his belt; cheekpieces the headgear of choice today.

Convincing winner of sole course start, over 2m3f last January (soft; also suited by good); had long break after finishing down the field in the Topham at Aintree last April; easy to back for new yard before making no impact at Lingfield recently but should have more going for him here.
