Form & Verdict

Handy strike-rate of 3-7 over hurdles but capable of off days too, and had to shrug one of them off when back to form for narrow Fontwell win (2m5f, good) 12 days ago; ought to be very competitive if on song again.

Won easily off today's mark on seasonal debut at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) in October and made the frame over C&D the following month but has lost his way a bit since and others here have much less to prove.

Went close in this race a year ago and was very creditable second in major Ascot handicap (3m good to soft) soon afterwards; needs to bounce back from a disappointing run at Newbury in December but is now only 2lb higher than when winning easily on seasonal debut at Ludlow (3m, good to soft).

Runner-up in valuable Ascot handicap (3m, good to soft) last season and probably posted career-best performance when winning easily on reappearance outing at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) in October; not quite in same form on either subsequent outing, though, and others probably have more potential.

First start for seven months when easily beating his three rivals at Fontwell last month, to make a winning start for new yard; that race had little depth and he's up 8lb but not that easy to resist given the manner of the win.

All races on good to soft or slower, improving for the step up to 2m5f when winning on handicap debut at Ludlow in February (soft); open to further improvement but has gone up 7lb for what looked an ordinary win (close second a beaten favourite twice since).

Last three wins on good ground but has won on soft and heavy; off 12 weeks, creditable fifth of ten at Newbury (3m, heavy) in February, fading only from the last; the cheekpieces he wore to good effect in the autumn return now and his yard's good record in this affords him plenty of respect.

Three good-ground wins last year (2m7f-3m2f) and fine second of 20 at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft) in October; below par at Cheltenham (3m, soft) in November last time out and perhaps he wants better ground, but he's shown promise on soft/heavy in the past and is not ruled out after a break.

Likes it here, three wins and a close second from six runs, and toughed it out well when just holding on over 2m4f last month (good); back up 3lb in first run beyond that trip; looks good for another solid effort.

Won a six-runner handicap at Wincanton (2m4f, good) last March and is now 2lb lower; however, he was down the field on his final run last season (2m5f, good) and tailed off on his reappearance at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) in December; this 10yo needs to get back on track.

Form & Verdict

Best hurdle form when winning 2m5f maiden for Willie Mullins in late 2020; lightly raced since and well held in two staying handicaps late last year; taking sizeable drop in grade but questionable whether this mark is within reach on British debut; tongue-tie fitted.
