Form & Verdict

Just did enough to open account over hurdles over C&D (good to firm) last month, his tenth attempt; travelled strongly for a long way that day and a subsequent 4lb rise might well be manageable.

Well beaten on handicap debut a year ago and, following a layoff, achieved very little when last of three in Newton Abbot maiden (2m5f, good to soft) in September; 1lb out of the weights here; difficult to enthuse over.

Caused 50-1 surprise when winning at Worcester (2m7f, good) in August and performed very well in defeat on both subsequent outings (2m7f/2m5f); may find others better handicapped here but can give another good account.

Returned from break with two very underwhelming runs at Taunton last month (2m3f/2m; no headgear) and comes here with quite a bit to prove but today's move back up in trip ought to be in his favour and the first-time visor might give him a boost (wore cheekpieces for latest win).

Close second to well-backed rival on last month's handicap debut (2m1f) and went one better when upped to 2m3f at Ayr (good) 11 days later; another 7lb higher here but could easily have more to offer over today's even longer trip.

Seems to need goodish ground and in first-time cheekpieces he ran out a ready winner at Newcastle in March (2m6f; four ran); no show at Haydock but that was a better race for which he was 20-1; Peter Kavanagh's claim brings him down to the same mark as for his recent win.

0-8 over hurdles when trained in Ireland but finished well when second of 16 at Listowel (2m4f, good to yielding) in September and has a significant role to play here if in similar form on this stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Dual point winner who was placed in three novice/maiden hurdles last autumn (2m4f-2m5f, good-soft); beaten about 34l on last month's seasonal/handicap debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f) but the ground was heavy there and he ran well to a point; no surprise if he gets closer much to the target here.
