Runner-up first three starts this season, including over C&D (soft) on reappearance, but had no obvious excuses when only fourth of six at Market Rasen (13-8 favourite) in January; needs first-time cheekpieces to have a positive effect.

Form & Verdict

Made promising start to chasing career when third at Ffos Las (2m, good) in April then just got the better of a dual subsequent winner to score over hurdles at Ayr (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) the following month; strong contender if returning from break in similar form.

Off the mark at the 11th time of asking over hurdles when winning a 2m4f handicap at Ayr (good) in May; pulled up switched backed to fences (jumped poorly on second start in that sphere) in October and no surprise to see him back hurdling; good chance on that Ayr form and Luca Morgan is a positive jockey booking.
