Form & Verdict
Won maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) in March but he's been held in three handicaps since including over fences in last two starts; still early days in this sphere but he went a bit in snatches back at Southwell (first-time cheekpieces) last time and probably needs to kick on again to defy this mark.

Low-mileage 6yo who struck form and won twice from the front in cheekpieces at Uttoxeter during the winter (2m4f, heavy/3m2f, good); unseated rider when tried in visor (retained) there last month but still has potential.

Swaps cheekpieces for a visor despite having won his last two handicap chases here, over 2m4f on heavy and 3m2f on good; jumped well when making all the last time and hard to grumble with a 6lb rise; obvious chance provided he takes to the change of headgear.

Got his act together on third chasing start, drawing well clear of the others with Graces Order (runs in 2.57 race) and gaining hard-fought success here (2m4f, heavy) four weeks ago; 6lb higher today but an obvious contender if this very different combination of trip and ground also suits.

Shot up the weights after back-to-back wins over 2m4f at Southwell (good/good to soft) in May; well held in both runs back from a break but his latest fourth over C&D was a respectable effort behind a handicap blot; has gone close on heavy ground in the past and looks interesting if he can build on that last run.

Big prices and he finished tailed off in all three hurdle runs (2m) in the spring; returns from 262 days off but he's a half-brother to a multiple winner over fences and is a possible improver upped in trip on his handicap/chase debut; one to keep an eye on.

Minor point and hurdle form; beaten a long way when fifth in two handicaps chases on soft/heavy this winter but the fact he's been prominent in the betting on both occasions suggests more was expected; perhaps the likely drier ground this time will help; interesting to see whether his supporters return.
