Form & Verdict

Finished third on the second of his two attempts in Irish points; respectable form in novice hurdles for new stable, winning by 6l at Fontwell (2m1f, soft) then runner-up at Newbury (2m, good to soft) behind a smart prospect; bred to be as effective at 2m4f; sets the standard.

Won twice for Gary Moore, including here, in late 2021/early 2022; returned from an 18-month absence to be well held in three runs (two over fences) for Chris Gordon before moving to James Owen; fared no better in a Class 3 at Newbury latest, so cheekpeices are now applied.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite on bumper debut, then fared better when third at Worcester (good) and runner-up at Lingfield (AW); folded tamely at Taunton (2m, soft) on the switch to hurdles but is open to improvement back on better ground; bred to be suited by this new trip.

Irish point winner; modest RPRs in two bumpers and two hurdles starts for new stable, most recently fifth of six (beaten 17l) over C&D; likely to be more interesting when switched to handicaps.

Won two of his last three races last season but he wasn't on the money at Hereford in November after a break and now returns from another; hard to weigh up right now but still has low mileage and he's not the worst handicapped of these.

Five-time winner at 1m6f-2m2f on AW for Tony Carroll; has shown hurdling promise in two runs at Taunton (2m/2m3f) for new yard, in touch and going okay when falling three out latest; capable of better judged on Flat form; possibilities granted a clear round.
