Form & Verdict

Showed nothing more than glimmer of promise in juvenile hurdles last season and was soundly beaten on last month's handicap debut at Ludlow (jumped left throughout); might fare better on this left-handed track, though, and didn't run badly on the Flat three weeks ago.

Opened account in small-field handicap hurdle here (2m, good) a year ago and his next two hurdle runs were perfectly respectable but his record over fences during the 2021-22 season was very uninspiring, and he has fitness to prove after 322 days off.
