Form & Verdict

Very useful on the Flat and over hurdles in his prime; without a win since March 2019 and was just a respectable fourth in Class 4 handicap at Taunton (2m, good to soft) last month but will be suited by the quicker ground here and is sure to appreciate today's drop in grade.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful at his best over hurdles but struggled on last two starts in this sphere (both in September); placed at 200-1 in low-grade AW handicap last month, after a break, but this month's Flat run was underwhelming; overall profile remains very unconvincing.
