Form & Verdict

Slow to take advantage of a modest mark in his early handicaps, including in other forms of headgear, but blinkers seem to have made the difference and he didn't have to exert himself too much when following up a C&D win over 1m3f at Southwell since; good claims despite penalty.

Improved on maiden promise over shorter when runner-up on turf handicap debut in August (about 1m3f) but just a short-lived effort when turned out four days later on Southwell AW (1m4f; odds-on; first-time cheekpieces, discarded here); may yet do better but this is competitive for the grade.

Had had a few chances off modest marks in handicaps but was an emphatic 1m6f winner here last week (first-time cheekpieces, retained); should have a big chance under a penalty, albeit that longer trip may suit better and this race looks more competitive.

Became disappointing on the Flat last year; suggested he might be able to win over hurdles when dead-heat third on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in February but next run was a backward step; returns from five-month break; others have more persuasive profiles.
