Strong contender judged on his best efforts for Pam Sly then Olly Murphy, and he's not ruled out on stable debut have been bought for £7,000 in December; however, his form took a slight downturn on his last few runs (latest last September) and his last win came on the Flat back in July 2018.

Tailed off over fences on his return from over a year out, when tried in a hood which is now dispensed with; has never been the easiest to win with and has a lot to prove right now.

Returned from a break to win on stable debut at Catterick in March 2022 (1m7f, good to soft); poor efforts last twice and probably best watched after a year off, with hood now tried.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't had to be at his best for selling/claiming wins at Leicester the last twice (1m7f/2m4f, soft/good to soft), and this 10yo might be vulnerable at some point in this grade; however, he's a leading player once more today.

Two wins following wind surgery last season, a selling handicap off this mark at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) and a claiming hurdle here (2m, good to soft); struck into when below best on heavy last time out but a strong contender on best form.

Finished in front of Us And Them, who admittedly paid for doing too much in the lead, at Leicester but was a below-par favourite in his bid to win that race for the second year running; 3-6 at claiming/selling level overall and could easily bounce back; has won over C&D.

Form & Verdict

In good form in the main in handicap chases in recent months, and he performed to a similar level over hurdles last season; carries topweight today, but he's a solid contender in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Refused to race on intended stable debut in December and below his best when third to Weebill in a Leicester claimer (1m7f, soft) last month; however, he's 4lb better off with the winner today and he won two selling hurdles for Fergal O'Brien last summer; every chance he'll be in the mix.

In fine fettle for Fergal O'Brien last spring/summer; after winning over fences at Southwell, he also justified favouritism in selling hurdles at Newton Abbot (2m2f) and Market Rasen (2m); really caught the eye when third on recent Leicester comeback (also stable debut) and looks the one to beat.

Justified favouritism on his final two starts for Fergal O'Brien but those were in small-field sellers (2m/2m2f) last summer; refused to line up over fences on his first intended outing for this yard in December; dangerous if on song but he comes with risks attached.
