Form & Verdict

No great shakes in bumpers but at least progressive and found further improvement to finish runner-up on his hurdling debut at Stratford (2m, good to soft); that form looks okay as the winner did it in a good time and has followed up, while the third went on to win a Ludlow handicap; strongly considered.

Had been competing over fences prior to springing a 33-1 surprise in the Lanzarote at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) in January, travelling well for a long way and sealing the issue with a good jump at the last; up 7lb but that's solid form and he's likely to be in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

His Flat form at 1m4f is decidedly smart (RPR of 103 when an Epsom winner on Derby day) and after a stuttery start over hurdles last season it was good to see him make the most of a straightforward task at Plumpton (2m, good); jumping was put under no pressure there in making all but the potential is there to go far.
