Modest on the Flat; showed a free-going nature when 125-1 winner on hurdles debut over C&D (good) in November; failed to complete on both subsequent starts, so that's a significant risk factor to bear in mind for handicap debut.

Inferior hurdler to some of these but only ran three times in that code and seems better on the AW, having recently won handicaps at Wolverhampton (2m) and Southwell (1m6f); narrow margins were no indication of his true authority, though he is up 6lb for last time.

Won at Leicester (2m, soft) in February before a disappointing run at Kelso (2m1f, soft) 16 days later; there's a major rethink on trip today but he was effective over 3m in points and he has a staying pedigree; unexposed and could have untapped potential at this distance if returning to form.
