Form & Verdict

Much improved this summer and completed a hat-trick with a ready success at Stratford eight days ago (2m2f); no penalty for that and 3lb lower so clearly the one to beat, assuming this trip isn't a problem.

6-17 over hurdles, the latest win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May; very respectable fifth off today's career-high mark in competitive race at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in July; probably won't be far away.

Has very good 6-16 strike-rate over hurdles, the latest win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May; current mark probably requires a career-best effort but he could plausibly have untapped potential over this trip.

First attempt at this sort of trip saw him pipped at Chepstow two starts ago; interesting on that but disappointed behind Nye Bevan next time, when back at 2m; tongue-strap (0-2 in one) back on.

Fortunate winner of a Newton Abbot maiden event in April but, following wind surgery, has run well in two handicaps, the latest when third at Uttoxeter 13 days ago; entitled to consideration after that.

Chase winner a year ago, his only success in 24 attempts; out of form when last seen in the winter and a lot to prove back hurdling on stable debut, having been bought out of Peter Bowen's yard for £3,500.
