Form & Verdict

Progressive over hurdles in recent starts for new trainer and off the mark when 5-4 favourite in 13-runner conditionals' handicap at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) last time, narrowly but perhaps with more in the tank; up 6lb and this 5yo from the family of the stable's very useful chaser Chance Du Roy makes his chase debut.

Minor promise in two bumpers in spring 2019; next seen this winter for three heavy defeats, including an exceedingly remote last of four when way out of his depth in his only chase; on the positive side, he's a very dark horse for handicap debut in very weak race and he has cheekpieces first time.
