Won a Listowel bumper last September but was disappointing on hurdling/stable debut at Fontwell (2m1f, soft) in December and he finished tailed off again at Huntingdon (2m, good; first run after wind surgery) last month; hood is now added into the mix and has quite a lot to prove.

Form & Verdict
Bought for £100,000 after winning an Irish point; has not made a big impact in three hurdle runs since but he showed promise with his front-running third at Warwick (2m5f, good; tongue-tie added) last month; sets a clear standard on this drop to 2m and he's a big player for in-form yard.

Bought for £100,000 after winning an Irish point; disappointing on hurdling/stable debut at Ludlow but hinted at better to come when sixth at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft; behind Jeffery's Cross) this month; needs to take another step forward and perhaps the fitting of a tongue strap will help.

0-4 in bumpers and 0-6 as a hurdler; respectable third in a 2m Uttoxeter maiden on his return from nearly 600 days off and, although not obviously well treated on that form, he should come on for the run.
