Quite decent on the Flat for Clive Cox, from 7f to 1m2f; however, only four ran when second in a juvenile hurdle here in August and he's struggled since then, including on handicap debut the last time (2m4f, good; first-time visor); only dropped 2lb for that 25l defeat.

Has some fairly useful Flat form on his CV and was second in four-runner juvenile hurdle on last summer's stable debut; well beaten in another two juvenile hurdles in the autumn (either side of finishing third in a Flat seller) but still worth a glance in the betting here; first-time visor.

0-13 under both codes but he did make a reasonable start in handicap hurdles when third over 2m1f at Sedgefield (good) in January; first and second in that race won on next start so he could be very competitive off 1lb lower this afternoon.
