Promising second at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) on his hurdle debut in December 2020 but he's been disappointing since including in handicaps in last five starts; mark continues to fall but has plenty to prove now switched to chasing in blinkers.

Dual hurdle winner at around 2m5f (good) but she's not progressed in five runs over fences and has finished a remote third in last two starts; very well handicapped on best hurdle form but she need to significantly raise her game with cheekpieces added.

Still unconvincing as a chaser but returned from a five-month break with very respectable fifth at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) and doubt she gave her running next time; well handicapped on some of her hurdle form; considered back from a break.

Form & Verdict
Rallied for a fair third over fences (3m, soft) on his penultimate run and was beaten less than 3l back over hurdles last time; still unexposed in this sphere but overall record stands at 0-18 and his tactical speed will be tested back at this trip; others are more persuasive.
