Form & Verdict

Very progressive 6yo who is 3-3 since switched to chasing in the summer; gained the second of those wins over this C&D and seemed to have a bit left in the tank on the run-in at Southwell (3m, good) last time; makes obvious appeal.

Returned from a break with encouraging fourth at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; stayed on well for third of 16 in Summer Cup at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good) last July, a run that can be upgraded due to jumping errors, and he's an interesting candidate; the drier the ground the better.

Pulled up at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) in October when last seen and unraced on soft/heavy, so the recent rain is a worry; however, this two-time C&D winner was a good third in this last year (good to soft) and if the ground dries he could go well now back on a course he clearly relishes.

0-5 over hurdles but stayed on for creditable fourth of 17 in Grade 3 handicap at Sandown (2m4f, soft) in April; had wind surgery during the summer and is fitted with a tongue-tie here; unraced on ground any quicker than soft; Emma Lavelle is evidently very keen to launch his chasing career.

Placed off 7lb higher mark in stronger race than this at Exeter (3m, good to soft) in November but was pulled up on next two outings and was last of four (albeit not beaten far) when cheekpieces were added for latest run; now 0-15 under all codes and needs to up his game; drops back in trip with visor tried today.

Very promising in novice hurdles last season, most notably when third in Grade 2 event at Warwick (2m5f, soft) in January; has some Irish pointing experience to call upon today and is a very interesting recruit to chasing.

Consistent over hurdles last season (won twice) and was very respectable third on chasing debut at Market Rasen (3m, good) in May, despite not jumping particularly well; others here have more potential, though.

Uncharacteristic flop at Wincanton on Boxing Day but he's consistent otherwise and had reappeared with a close second at Exeter in October; can be thereabouts if back on song.

Ended last season with disappointing hurdle run at Cheltenham in April but is quite well handicapped if judged on last autumn's clearcut Ascot win (2m7f, good); interesting to see how she fares on today's chasing debut.

Retains plenty of ability aged ten and won well under Tom Broughton at Southwell (3m, good to soft) in February; however, held off this mark since and faces some unexposed types in this field; vulnerable.
