Upwardly mobile yard going well and jockey booking catches the eye for this first-timer by Saddler Maker; market moves should be noted.

Three bumper outings and showed enough in two of them (the latest at Taunton in April) to suggest he may have a future; trainer in good form so can be considered now tackling hurdles.

Form & Verdict
Has more than enough ability to win a race of this type but has ruined his chances by pulling too hard and jumping frailties; each run worse than the last so far and risky on return from six months off.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

midfield, went fourth home turn, pushed along after 3 out, weakening when not fluent 2 out (jockey said, regarding running and riding, that his instructions were to ride handy and give gelding a good sight of his hurdles but not to use his whip as he is a fractious sort that needs cajoling; he added that he was pleased by the way gelding handled the preliminaries and, once racing, settled well into the race and was able to sit mid-division, 6 or 7l off the leaders; however, when they picked up the pace halfway round the final bend he was unable to go with them and gelding came off the bridle making a mistake at the penultimate flight; jockey maintained that gelding had no more to give down the home straight and therefore kept hold of his head to get him across the line and was only just able to maintain 4th position; he further added that, in his opinion, gelding felt weak and tired on today's good to soft ground but he considered that, once the gelding had strengthened up, he might be able to handle it better as well as benefitting from a longer trip)
