Nine-race maiden; jumped first fence very slowly but recovered to finish clear second on chasing debut at Leicester (2m6f, good) in January; should be okay on today's slower ground and still has potential over fences.

Pulled up over fences at Ludlow last month but left that run miles behind when exploiting lower hurdle mark over this C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago; also effective on soft ground; having gone up 5lb he remains well treated on this year's best chase form and holds leading claims.

Form & Verdict

Placed in big-field handicap hurdles on first two starts this season (2m3f/2m6f) and last month's 33l defeat on chasing debut shouldn't be viewed harshly, given he was badly hampered in the early stages; sports cheekpieces and moves up in trip today; could still have a good future over fences.

Switched to far more prominent rides this term, rewarded when winning readily on seasonal debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in October; form dipped slightly when third here (2m3f, soft) next time but he was back to his best when close third at Exeter (good to soft) on latest start; considered.

Stayed on from unpromising position to open hurdling account at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) in January and also ran well when third at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) last month; moves back up in trip for today's chasing debut; interesting to see how he fares.
