Form & Verdict

Flattered by finishing in such close proximity (within 9l) to Jonbon at Newbury on penultimate start, yet in the context of this race that was a pleasing effort; unable to land the odds at Doncaster (2m, soft) on return from wind surgery, but sets the form standard and should find these forecast drier conditions more favourable.

0-4 on Flat in Ireland; made a winning stable/hurdles debut in a modest juvenile maiden at Leicester (2m, good to soft; 15-8) in November; soon on the back foot in a much stronger race at Huntingdon (last of six) early in the New Year; wind surgery since; an obvious contender now dropping back into a more suitable Class 4 novice.

Triple hurdle/chase winner at around 2m on good or slower; yet to race beyond 1m5f in this code, nor in a handicap; initial mark gives him a chance based on his best Irish effort; market check suggested.

Scored at Hereford (2m3f, soft) in early 2023 and was still in good form at end of last season (2m4f-2m5f) but makes stable debut after 11-month absence and the drop back in trip may not be ideal.

Galloped on strongly from the final flight when making a winning debut at Ludlow (2m, good to soft; 25-1) six weeks ago; the second has won since, although the proximity of the third raises a slight degree of concern; more on his plate today under the incurred 7lb penalty.
