Form & Verdict

Useful three-time Flat winner for Eve Johnson Houghton (peak RPR of 90); jumping hasn't been foot-perfect in three hurdle runs for Alan King but he makes his handicap debut off a mark that catches the eye (only 11lb higher than his Flat mark); one to take seriously.

J: Hollie Doyle

T: Alan King

Made the frame over 1m4f on his last two turf starts and has become well handicapped, but he's no longer the force of old and was never involved over C&D last time; returns from a short break but his last Flat win was over two years ago and others are preferred.

Only handicap success came off a similar mark, but on heavy ground and conditions (described as good) were reportedly too quick for him here a fortnight ago; has a very mixed record.

Mixed record in handicaps and was said to have been suited by the heavy ground when off the mark at Lingfield in February; no standout at the weights back from a break and refitted hood of uncertain benefit (discarded after modest chase debut in one last May).

Capable middle-distance performer on the Flat; getting his act together over hurdles, falling at the last here when in contention in January and finishing second to a thriving rival at Huntingdon last week (2m, soft); no obvious reason why he wouldn't go very well once again.

Flat (1m4f, AW) and hurdle winner (2m, good); struggled under both codes in first three runs after a lengthy absence, but he showed signs of a revival with his 4l fourth at Salisbury (1m6f, good) last week; that was behind two progressive 3yos and has claims if he can back that up.
