Winning pointer who never offered much over hurdles, including two handicaps; beaten 42l and 37l in his two handicap chases but what could make a difference is this much softer ground; tongue-tie back on.

Both wins over 2m at Ffos Las but seems versatile as he ran well over 3m there (soft) in November; failed to show his form in a couple of 2m3f contests here since; has a fighting chance off current mark, provided he's suited by this step back up in distance.

Form & Verdict

Not shown much in any of his four runs under rules but he won two points in the spring and ran third in a modest hunter chase at Stratford in May; something to prove off this sort of mark but only a 6yo and may have better days ahead of him.

Used to act on soft; sole win from 15 chase starts came at Plumpton (3m1f, good to soft; same mark today) in February 2022 when in first-time cheekpieces, which have been kept since; however, out of form on last two starts (April and October 2022) and now has a fair bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

Third to the smart Undersupervision on hurdling debut (3m1f, heavy) but nothing to shout about afterwards, including when 50-1 for the switch to handicaps last time (3m, good to soft); this Irish point winner is entitled to progress as a chaser.

Improved for going handicapping over about 3m in the mud last season as a hurdler and bumped into one well handicapped here the final time; raised 3lb for that but looks the type to do well in staying chases.
