Form & Verdict

Effectively his first start for this yard when prevailing in a match at Carlisle (2m4f, good) and confirmed himself useful at Market Rasen where he had every chance when unseating two out in a competitive 2m5f handicap; on same mark for this and major claims if okay with the drop in distance.

Went off only 12-1 when pulled up over fences in the Grand Annual last time; had a decent spell over hurdles at the start of last year when competitive off this sort of mark; 2m might be his best trip but certainly not dismissed lightly.

Had a decent spell over hurdles at the start of last year and returned to fences to finish a creditable third on his 2m Sandown reappearance (soft) four weeks ago, keeping on well from the rear; the cheekpieces he wore at the end of last season are refitted; not discounted.

Below form in the Imperial Cup here last March on his only start on heavy; had won over 2m here (soft) last January and was runner-up elsewhere twice last spring, all over hurdles but he was pretty useful over fences too the season before; not seen since April but has to be given a close look.

Won two handicap chases (2m, good/good to soft) in the autumn and he ran another big race when only just caught at Hereford (jumped well) last month; nudged up 3lb for that but he's still lightly raced in this sphere and should make another bold bid.

Consistent hurdler and in good form switched to chasing this term, winning at Worcester (2m, soft) and very respectable in defeat since; off the same mark though as at Ludlow last time and this looks stronger.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 7yo who has endured some long absences during his career; won a Perth novice hurdle last September and he faced a severe test on his switch to fences at Warwick in a race won by subsequent Grade 1 winner Edwardstone; this more realistic assignment should reveal more.

Form & Verdict

All his form stacks up well and he's temptingly handicapped on a strict interpretation of a close second behind the now smart Notre Pari in a 2m3f soft-ground novice hurdle at Fontwell in February 2020; that was a long time ago so interesting to see what the market makes of him on chase debut.
