Form & Verdict

Flat winner at 1m6f on good to soft (RPR 92); early promise over hurdles, including over C&D on heavy, but pulled-up favourite on handicap debut at Wincanton when said to be unsuited by soft; can't be totally enthusiastic after that but he clearly has potential.

Her last hurdle win was in November 2020 but she travelled strongly for a long way when runner-up here (2m4f) last month and got pestered for the lead when a well-held third at this track last time; looks interesting on that penultimate form and she could make a bold bid back at this trip.

Soundly beaten over C&D in November after a long absence and also disappointed in a chase a fortnight later; needs to stage a revival but very well handicapped on old form (includes a soft-ground C&D win) and might be perked up by first-time cheekpieces.

Useful form in one start in Ireland; stuck his neck out to win 2m4f Hexham maiden in December and kept finding when close third in 1m7f Haydock handicap (soft) last month, where he lost his position when diving at three out; respected off same mark.
