Form & Verdict
Showed no significant ability in three maiden/novice hurdles (2m-2m4f) but justified heavy market support to win from 11lb out of the weights over C&D (soft; first-time tongue-tie) on recent chase/handicap debut; effectively 4lb lower today and has obvious chance to complete a quick double; cheekpieces now added.

Things have soon picked up over fences, winning from 11lb out of the handicap at Musselburgh (3m, soft; backed) and duly following up on good to soft there 14 days ago when 4lb lower (cheekpieces added); 13lb higher than last time but he could still be very well handicapped given the style of his recent wins.

Tailed off on his three hurdle starts and he's 11lb wrong at the weights on this handicap/chase debut; however, he showed ability in 3m points (including on soft) and in a bumper, and he could be a big improver now switched to fences and upped in trip; wears a first-time tongue-tie.

Form & Verdict
Struck form and completed chasing hat-trick towards end of last year, the latest win gained over C&D (good to soft); below form on soft ground at Newcastle (2m4f) in January but still unexposed over 3m and further progress remains possible.

Returned to form when third of five in a warm little race at Musselburgh (3m, good to soft) last time, the venue for his two previous wins (3m, soft); also ran well on his last visit here and he's one to consider.
