Lightly raced 5yo who hinted at promise in bumpers, but he's failed to replicate that over hurdles and was soundly beaten on his handicap debut last month (2m4f, soft); needs to raise game in first-time tongue-tie.

Losing run goes back 15 races to October 2020 but, having dropped down the weights, he was a good second at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) last month on his final run for Charles & Adam Pogson; stays this far and is versatile ground-wise; could play a leading role on stable debut.

Big odds and didn't shown much on his first three hurdle starts last autumn (2m/2m3f, good/good to soft); however, this good-ground point winner now goes handicapping off a lowly mark for a trainer in excellent form; interesting, all the more so if attracting market support.
