Form & Verdict

Went close at Newmarket (1m, soft) last October on his second start; hasn't gone on from that this season, finishing soundly beaten on his three starts (1m2f-1m6f), but it's still early days and perhaps things will click now he's upped to 2m; not written off.

Form & Verdict

Not at his best at Newmarket last time and could do with settling better; however, he was enjoying a fine campaign up to that point, with 1m4f wins in May and June (here), and he ran well over 2m at Ascot in May so should be fine now back up in trip; in the mix if leaving his last run behind.

Dual winning hurdler whose six Flat wins have all come over shorter, but he does stay this far and seems to go on most ground; just 1lb above his last winning mark and likely to have come on from his reappearance here (1m4f, soft) this month when 4l behind Star Angel; considered.

Last year's wins (one over hurdles and two on the Flat) came on good ground but he's been effective on soft in the past; merely mid-division on the Flat at Doncaster a fortnight ago when back from some time off but it was the same story in that race last year prior to winning over hurdles next time.

Won this in 2019 (fifth 12 months ago) and posted his third Chester win last October; 4lb out of the handicap today but he was a good third at Carlisle last time and his course record is a positive; not discounted.

Made all over 1m2f here last month and went very close over 1m4f here in June; his liking of Chester is a plus but he hasn't been shaping as though he wants 2m, so there's a big question regarding stamina.

Doesn't win all that often (2-27) and hasn't really kicked on since finishing runner-up at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) in May; that said, there were mitigating circumstances (hampered) at Newcastle last time, so he may get closer to Point Louise.
