Not one to set your clock by but he has flashes of good form and had one of his better days when beating three rivals at Taunton (3m, good to soft) three weeks ago; 2lb rise is nothing to get down about but this is appreciably tougher than that.

Pretty useful form on Flat for the Crisfords included his front-running win in a 1m3f maiden at Hamilton in August; ran well over 1m6f next time; below form on heavy latest (October); sold for 135,000gns in October and has the second best Flat form in this field.

Nine-race maiden on Flat, with some fair form up to 1m4f; there was a whiff of ability (holding place chance two out) from off the pace when 28-1 for hurdling debut on good ground at Fontwell one month ago, ending a 28l fifth of 12; can brush up his jumping and needs big overall improvement.

1m5f Flat win in France (soft) in May; raced too freely in his two starts over hurdles last month, although still on the premises at Leicester last time when his jockey reported he hung so badly left from turning for home that they could not jump the third-last flight; has ability but best watched for now.
