Form & Verdict

Won only start in bumpers; no real threat in three novice hurdles but attracted support ahead of last month's handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m2f, good to soft); sloppy round of jumping cost him dear and he did well to finish third; slightly longer trip could help and has claims if he can find more fluency; cheekpieces added.

No win in his frst 14 starts but he got off the mark when forging clear under Patrick Wadge over C&D (good to soft) 19 days ago; up 9lb but his confidence should be boosted after that success and he's a big player again for in-form yard.

Frequent runner here, including for his only two wins; rallied to prevail close home over C&D (good) in May but ran a shocker back here three weeks ago; others appeal more at the weights even if he is back to his best and he has a bit more to prove if the ground is worse than good to soft.
