Had form figures of 213511 in May-September last year but he ended 2023 with a major blip at Newcastle; was reported to have had blood in his windpipe after that race but he now returns after 204 days off and doesn't have a great record when fresh; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Useful winning hurdler; having only second handicap start in this sphere when coming with a strong run to lead near the finish at Ayr (1m5f) 15 days ago; up 4lb on AW debut but still looks well treated based on hurdle ability; the one to beat with the return to 2m in his favour.

In good form on the Flat in the autumn, whereas he has not been at his best back over hurdles since but has been dropped 8lb in the process; seems to go well here, including for two of his four hurdling wins, but this is his first run here since 2019.

Not the force of old and tailed off at Ayr last time; however, prior to that he showed some spark over C&D when runner-up to easy winner Wakool, and he's been given a chance by the handicapper; not ruled out.

Both turf wins on good ground, at 1m2f and 1m4f; ran up against one ahead of his mark when a remote second at Ripon (1m6f, heavy) last week but overall form for this yard doesn't suggest she's about to end a losing run.

Well held at Haydock (2m) back from a break for new yard last month; however, he had a good record over this C&D for previous trainer David Loughnane last winter, winning two handicaps and a jumpers' bumper, so no surprise if a return to this venue sparks a revival.

Form & Verdict

Has been running well on turf and continued the good work back on AW with a win over the extended 1m4f here a fortnight ago; return to this trip asks a different question (not disgraced on previous C&D attempt) but he certainly arrives at the top of his game.
