Form & Verdict

In good form on the Flat this spring/summer (albeit off lowly marks) and opened hurdling account with clear success at Worcester (2m, good) seven weeks ago; subsequent 8lb rise asks him a question, though, and rain is unlikely to aid his cause.

Lowly rated maiden on the Flat in 2022 but struck twice over hurdles later that year and in reasonable form when last seen in that sphere just under a year ago; betting perhaps the best guide after his lay-off.

Lowly rated maiden on the Flat but struck form over hurdles in early part of last season, winning twice (2m, good); kept on past Give Me A Cuddle for very creditable second of 13 at Kempton (2m5f, good) ten days ago and should not be underestimated off the same mark here.

0-15 over hurdles and has basically become disappointing but was placed off today's mark on consecutive starts in July (latterly over C&D) and seems versatile regarding ground; probably in the mix again.

Raced too freely and was pulled up when upped to 2m7f for handicap debut in July; has something to prove after that performance but his last two qualifying runs (2m3f/2m) were encouraging and he may benefit from this drop back in trip.
