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.

Prominent racer; built upon Wolverhampton AW win when scoring unchallenged in a 2m maiden hurdle at Wetherby (soft); now 7lb higher than for last handicap appearance, but does have previous Sedgefield experience to fall back upon, and Brian Hughes aboard.

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.

All races on soft; fair effort from front when third at Sedgefield (2m4f) in March but no step forward when remote runner-up at Wetherby since (2m; cheekpieces added, retained); perhaps the change in surface will suit.
