Form & Verdict

Has finished placed a few times at up to 1m6f this season but he has a patchy profile and made it 0-12 when a well-held sixth at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) last time; cheekepieces now go on and he comes with risks attached.

Dual-purpose performer who is a triple winner at up to 1m5f on the Flat and was successful in a maiden hurdle last summer; ran well in a big-field claiming hurdle (2m4f) in his final run in Ireland in July and needs a close look back on the Flat on his first run for Mick Appleby; tongue-tie worn last time is removed.

Off the mark (12th attempt) when landing a 1m6f handicap at Ffos Las in August; didn't hit the same level back on Tapeta at Southwell 18 days ago but that was still a respectable effort behind an improver and he still has potential as a stayer.

Got off the mark at Southwell in February and back in top form on last two starts when second at Leicester (again under Laura Pearson) and winning an amateurs' race at Carlisle, all over 1m3f or 1m4f; has 5lb penalty but the ground may pose the biggest question, as his only run on softer than good was low-level form early in career.
