Form & Verdict

Just pipped on his hurdling debut (2m5f) and runner-up to a smart prospect next time (both at Doncaster); sets a clear standard on form and should prove hard to beat, assuming this trip is within his compass.

Chasing this season has not worked out but he's well handicapped if reverting to the 3m hurdle form he showed last January-March; wore cheekpieces latest two starts; needs a close look.

He's well treated on his staying hurdle form from early last year (including on good ground) but his two chase starts have yielded a mid-race fall and a soundly beaten fifth of seven; something to prove in this sphere.

Race rather fell apart when easily taking a Fakenham mares' handicap in January (3m, good to soft); not really any wiser as to whether she can defy a 5lb higher mark as she made a serious error at Ffos Las on sole start since, but lightly raced enough over fences to believe she might.

Consistent efforts in five career starts; in the frame in three bumpers and looked set for second until falling here on her hurdling debut; well beaten when third latest but should play a part and longer trip a likely help, judged on her pedigree.
