Course bumper winner (heavy) who bolted up at Taunton (2m, soft) in January on his third hurdle start; better could have been expected at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) on handicap debut last time but it wasn't a bad run and he's a leading player under a 7lb penalty this afternoon.

Tends to race a bit too freely but looked very well suited by switch back to front-running tactics (used for his bumper win) when bagging Taunton maiden (2m, soft) by 15l this month, his third start over hurdles; faces tougher opposition in this handicap but ought to make a bold bid.

Two wins in middle-distance handicaps for Ralph Beckett (peak RPR of 91); jumping left room for improvement on last month's stable/hurdle debut but he still showed a fair level of ability; much more to come in this sphere and he ran creditably on his only experience of soft ground on the Flat.
