Won on his stable debut at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in December 2021 and is now 3lb lower; may have needed the run in that same race last month but he was also below par on his final two starts last season and the first-time blinkers need to make a difference.

Way down the weights when he made a winning start for new stable at Leicester (2m4f, soft; 2lb higher today) in December; not discredited next time but disappointing favourite at Carlisle latest; his four runs at about 3m have not yielded much, so he has questions to answer.

Very lightly raced 10yo; won by 20l off this mark at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) in May 2019, making all; not so good in his only four starts since and unraced for 13 months, so there are clearly risks.

Runner-up to a stablemate at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) on hurdles debut and went one better in a maiden at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) three weeks later; fluffed two out on first occasion and the last flight on latest; brings potential to this handicap debut, which should make him a big player.

Knocking on the door (including on good to soft ground) prior to winning at Wincanton (2m5f, heavy) in January; has tackled 2m7f/3m when pulled up the last twice and this drop back in trip could help, but it's hard to be confident in this 10yo's claims on the back of those performances.

Very useful chaser in his prime but has beaten hardly anything in his last four starts, with a 669-day absence before his two runs over hurdles this season; beaten a lot less far (just over 10l) on latest but it's hard to make that a persuasive claim here unless he's also been the subject of very positive market move.

Form & Verdict

Nothing like the force of old and he's never popped up in front that often but one such occasion was over C&D in December 2019 and another was over fences (3m1f) this May; well handicapped on chase form this spring and may have needed his latest start after six-month break; case can be made.
