Creditable sixth in Aintree Grade 2 bumper last April having dotted up at Hereford the time before; went very close in maiden hurdle back at Hereford (2m3f, soft) on sole outing this term; leading player provided he stays this new trip (mixed messages in pedigree).

Useful in bumpers last season and lost out only by a head in 15-runner Hereford maiden (2m3f, soft) on hurdle debut in December; that form aready sets a good standard here, and he ought to have a fair bit more to offer.

Narrowly beaten in a Wincanton bumper (solid level of form) before landing the odds in a canter here in February (2m bumper, soft); came up short in Grade 2 bumper at the Aintree Grand National meeting but should make into a fair hurdler (debut) on the basis of pedigree; noteworthy type.

Form & Verdict

Unable to justify favouritism on last month's debut, when a slow pace led to him being outpaced late on; likely to be seen to much better effect in a more truly run contest and should go close.
