Form & Verdict

Having dropped down the weights he won in a first-time visor at Hereford (2m, good) three weeks ago; has a patchy profile and it remains to be seen whether he'll produce another good performance, but he'll be in the mix if the visor maintains its positive effect.

Record of 7-23 over fences and he completed a double at Warwick (2m, good) and Hereford (2m5f, good to firm) not that long ago; conditions weren't that taxing last time at Fakenham (good to soft) and seems to need the ground good or quicker.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at Hereford (2m, good) last month before a good second at Ludlow (2m, good) three days later, and back to winning ways at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) last time; has shot up the weights but this lightly raced 6yo is clearly thriving and may well still be ahead of his mark.

On a handy mark and he was a fair fifth at Huntingdon in March, but that was over 2m7f and he made it 0-22 under rules when pulled up there last time out in May; best to look elsewhere.

Both wins gained at Huntingdon just over a year ago; not much since until remarkable performance when third at Market Rasen last week, from 33lb out of the handicap; hard to place maximum faith in that but repeat certainly makes him of serious interest.

Showed little over hurdles but handicap/chase debut was more encouraging, finishing a close second at Hereford recently (2m, good) when attempting to give plenty of weight to one who has run well since; up 2lb; can improve and good claims back at 2m4f for yard that's 37% over fences here (23-63).
