First-time visitor here on a downward spiral for a while now, but only a youngster and if he can recapture his mojo, he could give them a scare off his mark, although predicting a revival not easy and without doubt has questions to answer.

Form & Verdict
Relatively unexposed at this game (1-7); picked up a ladies rider Flat handicap win in recent weeks; something seemed amiss when poor in the 'Ragusa'; should be well primed all the same for return to hurdling (disappointed on last roll of the dice); has the engine if he brings his 'A-game and first-time tongue-tie a notable addition.
