He could do with settling better in this code but ran well in defeat at the end of last year on his first three hurdle starts (1m7f-2m1f, good-soft); off the mark at the 19th attempt when scoring at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) earlier this month; strong claims.

Fair fourth on debut at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) in December and ran to a similar level when third there (2m4f, soft) this month; his form is right up there with the best in the line-up and this well-bred 5yo may appreciate today's drop in trip; one to consider in first-time headgear.

He's a 12-race maiden but he went close at Southwell (2m4f, good) two starts ago and bumped into a progressive winner when 5l second at Sedgefield (2m5f, good) last Thursday; there can be optimism he'll be okay on the forecast good to soft ground and every chance he'll be bang there.
