Form & Verdict
His losing run goes back 18 races to January 2020 but he was useful at his peak and showed he can be very competitive from his reduced mark when 1l third of 13 over 9.4f here in December; this is the first time he's tackled further than 1m2f.

Form & Verdict
Fairly useful hurdler with a decent strike-rate; contesting only his second handicap on the Flat when returning from five months off to finish second to a subsequent winner over 2m at Newcastle in October; evidently capable when fresh and the way he travelled at Newcastle suggests this shorter trip won't faze him; leading claims.

The return to 1m has been the making of him in handicaps this spring, getting up close home at Nottingham (good to soft) then came clean away at Newbury on Friday (good); due to run under a penalty at Ayr on Wednesday but unpenalised if turning up here; due to go up 11lb in future.
