Record of 2-3 over hurdles for Oliver Sherwood, the wins gained over 2m4f and 3m1f; something was possibly amiss in hat-trick attempt when last seen; sold for £75,000 since; remains open to further improvement and looks an interesting recruit for Alastair Ralph.

Unexposed 6yo who began hurdling career with two wins for Oliver Sherwood last winter (2m4f, soft/3m1f, good to soft); flopped badly on handicap debut in March but remains one to be interested in; changed hands for £75,000 in May; makes stable debut today.

3m point runner-up who made a winning rules debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) in October; underwhelming fifth at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) subsequently and hard to be confident on the back of that, but the Carlisle form reads well and this very lightly raced 6yo retains potential; not ruled out.

Won on hurdle debut here (2m4f, soft) in October and probably bettered that performance when close second at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) in December; not sure to be suited by the quicker ground here (recently withdrawn with good to soft deemed unsuitable) but, nevertheless, he's a strong contender.

Made a winning hurdling debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) in the autumn and he has run creditably over 3m+ on his last two starts; dropping back in trip should be no inconvenience for this prominent racer; leading contender.

Made a winning rules debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) last October; couldn't build on that here (2m3f, good to soft) next time, under a penalty; went very close to defying his penalty at Catterick latest (3m1f, good to soft), when a better jump at the last may have sealed it; big player.

Form & Verdict

Placed in points and runner-up towards end of last year on first two rules starts (2m3f/3m1f, soft), most recently under Gearoid Harney; didn't really threaten the winner either time but the form is solid and he's a leading candidate this afternoon in receipt of weight from his main rivals.

Form & Verdict

There's some potential in his pedigree and he hinted at promise on his debut in a bumper at Market Rasen (2m, good) in November 2020; however, he was tailed off the following month (2m, heavy) and is probably best watching now going hurdling after an absence; has had wind op since last time.
