Form & Verdict

Point/bumper winner who has been placed in all three attempts over hurdles; disappointing that he couldn't put the race to bed when 1-2 favourite at Chepstow (2m7f, soft) latest, collared by lower-rated rival on the run-in; one to treat with some caution after that defeat but sets the form standard.

Had one attempt at chasing last season; confined to hurdles this campaign and he's been hard to knock for consistency or progress, last time out at Cheltenham going agonisingly close in the Pertemps Final (3m, soft); questionable whether he can bridge the gap to Grade 1 level but it won't be through a lack of effort.

Evidently held in some esteem as he started 5-4 favourite for Irish point in November (finished a clear second) then was pitched into a decent novice hurdle at Ascot (2m3f; finished 27l fifth) on rules debut; from a good family and should be capable of improvement; interesting.

Unimproved for the application of cheekpieces (retained) when last seen in July, albeit refusing to settle; current mark looks good next to his peak efforts of 2021-22, including at this sort of trip, and smattering of chase winners in pedigree offers hope ahead of this switch to fences.
