Solid win and place form in bumpers granted a galloping track and slow ground; yet to catch fire the same way over hurdles, and whilst a pair of lost shoes offers some excuse last time there's likely still some improvement needed where jumping is concerned.

Already a few career breaks and changes of yards since 2019's easy win in a Cheshire point (2m4f, good) but still improving even so, the RPR of 127 for last month's near-4l third at Doncaster setting a clear standard today; scope to do better still if that day's mistakes and late hanging are snuffed out, and major player here.

Won't be the strongest maiden hurdle ever were he to win this having been held off a mark of 110 in a Chepstow handicap last time (3m, soft), and notable his lowest hurdling RPR to date was recorded around here; does stay this far, however, and that latest run will at least have restored confidence lost in chases; blinkers added.
