Form & Verdict

Rallied well for narrow win on rules debut at Ffos Las (2m4f) and bettered that form when fourth in good-quality contest at Ascot (2m5f); disappointed when 10-11 at Carlisle one month ago and now has tongue tied; all three starts under rules were on soft; big shout if bouncing back to form.

Looked destined for big things when first going chasing and the handicap form of his close third in this race (soft; equally effective on good to soft) last year could hardly be bettered; ran up to his best when third in the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury in December but things haven't gone to plan since and he came home a tired horse at Kelso ten days ago; doubts have crept in but cheekpieces are added and the yard has won this race three times.

Form & Verdict

Won two bumpers last season and began hurdling career with two wins in the autumn (2m3f/2m6f); left toiling by top-notcher Constitution Hill in Grade 1 Tolworth (2m, heavy) in January but that was a good run, much better than last month's sixth of nine on handicap debut (2m6f); tries a new trip and returns to less testing ground; firmly in the mix if back on song.

Performed below expectations in his last two hurdles but he won two novices (2m3f/2m6f) before finishing third to Constitution Hill in the Grade 1 Tolworth; interesting chaser for this season on the back of wind surgery.

Won two bumpers last season and began hurdling career with two wins in the autumn (2m3f/2m6f); left toiling by the very exciting Constitution Hill when third in Grade 1 Tolworth (2m, heavy) last month but that certainly wasn't a bad run and his sights are lowered today; likely contender.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in three of his four starts under rules, best form at Fontwell (2m6f, good to soft) on penultimate outing; latest was just a three-runner race at same course, when no match for the favourite and fading markedly; best form does not put him that far behind the two who have run.
