Brian Hughes was also aboard when winning by 7l at Hexham (2m, good) and it could be that he failed to stay 2m4f when penalised here four weeks ago; entitled to be in the thick of things.

Weighted to reverse course placings in early June with Haveyougotmymoney and he was just as good when again placed at Stratford; should give his running but he's 0-8 and vulnerable once more.

Has only won over 8.6f on the AW and that was over two years ago; still a maiden over hurdles (0-7) but he ran okay in the blinkers at Market Rasen (2m handicap) and won't be far away with something similar.

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)

Divided the now smart chasers Mackenberg and Bavington Bob in a soft-ground bumper at Carlisle in late 2019, so evidently has plenty of ability; changed hands for £20,000 not long afterwards but his debut for this yard has been a long time coming.
