Safely held in her first two chases (2m3f/2m5f) but not without displaying some promise; now 5lb lower than when going close over hurdles in October and could plausibly have untapped potential over 3m+; not ruled out.

Form figures of 532 reflect his steady progress, most recently a close second in maiden hurdle at Warwick (2m3f, good) in April; with that trajectory he's interesting on handicap debut.

Said to have found good to soft going too slow at Market Rasen two starts ago but has won either side of that and did well to beat a penalised improver (who's now 7lb higher) on good ground over C&D 14 days ago; an 8lb higher mark might not be enough to stop him.

Form & Verdict

Five-race maiden last term, pulled up the last twice; holds weak form claims but a combination of wind surgery and first-time tongue-tie may prompt improvement; check for market support.

Jumped well and made all at Plumpton (near 2m4f, good to soft) in November on second start over fences; right out of form on next outings but there was a partial recovery when these cheekpieces were enlisted at Wincanton (15l second) latest, so he's considered in this weak race.

Has shown little in four British runs but represents notable connections and may yet confirm her French promise (placed twice); fitting of tongue-tie may bring about such improvement.
