Form & Verdict

Didn't take to chasing all that well last year but scored over C&D (good to soft) when back over hurdles in February; only 2lb higher today but returns here after two heavy defeats at Wincanton and needs a boost from the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces).

Form & Verdict

Looked badly out of sorts when pulled up in two chases towards end of last year but, following a wind op, fared much better when second in C&D hurdle last month; remains very well handicapped on older form and promising 7lb claimer Nathan Brennan is given the ride today; big player.

Dropped in the weights after a dip in his performances and he's got back on track of late with placed efforts on good ground at Wincanton (2m4f) and Kempton (2m5f); beaten further last time (about 8l) but he returned with a wound on his leg; should be a factor.

Yet to add to his juvenile hurdle win here in 2019 and struggled on both appearances in 2020-21 season but returned from 318-day absence with very creditable third here (2m, good) last month; back up in trip with cheekpieces added today; interesting to see whether he can build on that recent effort.
