Off the mark over hurdles with a comfortable success in a Navan maiden (2m, good to yielding) last month; fell short of that level of form when third at Downpatrick last time but has been found a good opportunity to get back on the winning trail.

Promise on the first of two runs in bumpers when fourth at Wetherby (2m, good) in February; makes hurdles debut on first start since March; probably best watched.

Some ability in his first four starts over hurdles, but having been absent for nine months and undergone wind surgery he was pulled up here (2m2f, soft) in December; related to winners over fences, but enough to prove upped in trip for his chase debut.

In the frame in two Irish points; cost £55,000 in February and is a half-brother to 2m3f-3m2f hurdle winner Milan Bridge; worth a second look on hurdling/stable debut.

Well beaten when unseating at final fence at Newcastle (2m7f, soft) last November; however, he's had a break since and prior to last time he was an encouraging third on his chase and seasonal debut at Kelso (2m7f, soft); this lightly raced 7yo wears first-time cheekpieces and is not written off.

His form went the wrong way over hurdles but he kicked off his chase career with 5l third of six at Kelso (2m7f, soft) last month; that was an encouraging effort after six months off and has claims if he can build on that.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in sole point but looked a different proposition when winning a bumper at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) in March; half-brother to smart hurdler/chaser Maria's Benefit so this test should suit; looks the danger to Nonbinding.
