Sole hurdle win at 2m2f in September; often competitive in defeat subsequently but has been going through a lean spell this year and was beaten a long way out over 2m4f at Uttoxeter ten days ago; others preferred.

Sole win (28 attempts) was in a 2m2f selling handicap last September; had a run of seconds over about 2m before his form dipped behind Maillot Blanc at Hereford (2m3f; soft ground a possible excuse) on penultimate start and fell two out at Wincanton on latest (looked beaten); competitive often enough to be considered.

Sole win (27 attempts) was in a 2m2f selling handicap last September; had a run of seconds over about 2m before his form dipped at Hereford (2m3f) on latest start but it's possible that soft ground was against him; stamina has not been proved.

Won off this mark at Warwick (2m5f) in May, after a break, but backward steps since; took a heavy fall (well beaten) on latest start and needed blinkers to reinvigorate him.

Form & Verdict

Little in first four starts but distinct step forward when fourth at Cartmel a week ago; that's reflected in opening handicap mark but must be a chance he can improve again; not discounted.

Successful in a novices' handicap at Southwell (2m, soft; 33-1) in November but has failed to match that level of form in two subsequent starts; first-time visor replaces blinkers and cheekpieces which have been worn previously.

Both wins in 2021 came off higher marks and he ran well enough at Uttoxeter in May; no joy in two chasing attempts since but good enough to take this if able to show his best, though trip is on the sharp side.
