Form & Verdict

Very useful Flat-racer at up to 1m6f, with form on ground ranging from good to firm to soft; respected trainer has good strike-rate with occasional hurdle runners (11-45 in last five seasons), and it will be very interesting to see how this 5yo takes to hurdling; usual cheekpieces left off.

T: Archie Watson

Wide-margin Flat winner under Brodie Hampson at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) in March but he laboured badly under a penalty after; has had more of a break this time and should be well treated back hurdling even though this career has seen more troughs than peaks since two wins in late 2022.

Form & Verdict

Useful chaser with very good 7-19 strike-rate; not seen over hurdles since summer 2020 and current ability in this sphere is tricky to gauge, but he ought to be good enough to play a major role in a race of this nature; has won on good to soft but seems best on good ground; had wind op in July.
