Form & Verdict

Fairly useful form over fences in recent months, including a 2m Ludlow win in November; beaten a long way in three novice events on the Flat but his jumps ability suggests he could be competitive from a modest opening mark in this sphere.

0-6 over hurdles but seemingly aided by a wind op and/or first-time tongue-tie when second to progressive rival at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last month; had to settle for fourth when favourite over same C&D since but there were mitigating circumstances; remains very much of interest.
