Form & Verdict

Two novice wins over hurdles included one at Cheltenham; grossly flattered to get within a length of an easy winner (smart) on his chase debut in a 2m handicap at Newton Abbot (2m) but he warmed to his task there and the handicapper left his mark alone.

Delivered with a well-timed challenge to win major 3m2f handicap at Newbury (good to soft) eight weeks ago, proving suited by the new trip and taking chase record to 3-10; generally progressive and is unexposed beyond 2m4f; possibilities.

Unraced beyond an extended 2m4f and this is a tough race in which to test his stamina; however, he was strong at the finish when winning a Grade 2 novice at Ayr (2m4f, good) in April and may well have staying potential; might have needed his reappearance in the Old Roan and is not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Useful Flat horse and the winner of two novice hurdles; came up short in handicap hurdles but, off a reduced mark, he was the only one to give an in-form (and race-fit) winner any sort of race at Cheltenham 12 days ago, and he ran as though that race would bring him on; back up 4lb but of strong interest on this second chase start (jumped well when third in the first).

A winner in France and looked good in winning a novice hurdle at Huntingdon (2m3f, good) on her British debut; couldn't build on that in three handicaps but down 8lb for her troubles and chasing could be the making of her.

No win in his first 12 chase starts but he took advantage of reduced mark when scoring in good style at Taunton (2m, soft) last month; 8lb higher in different conditions here but he's versatile regarding trip and ground and remains well handicapped on his best form; respected.

Didn't have a lot in hand when winning two Wetherby handicap hurdles last season (2m/2m3f) but that's reflected in just a small rise in the weights and his final run was too bad to be true; bred to make a chaser.

Two wins in smallish fields at Wetherby (1m7f/2m3f) last season; up and down this campaign but was trying 3m for the first time when beaten about 7l at Sandown a month ago (good to soft) and appeared to stay okay; nothing wrong with this mark.

Only 4lb higher than the mark off which he won over hurdles last season; satisfactory chase debut at Market Rasen (2m1f handicap, good to soft) but no more than that with only the two finishing; this looks stronger.

Back-to-back wins in the new cheekpieces at Huntingdon (2m4f, good/good to soft) early last year; looked rusty when well behind Huelgoat on his return and he was easy to back; better can be expected this time with a tongue-tie added.

Had a good spell before Christmas with wins at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) and Ascot (2m3f, good), albeit presented with the latter race on a plate by the wayward runner-up; little to recommend him on subsequent soft-ground runs, though, including in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham, and just 1lb lower than for those two defeats.

Overhauled Calico late on over C&D (good to soft) in November and he was the one to profit from Harper's Brook pulling himself up in front at Ascot (2m3f, good) just before Christmas; looked in trouble a long way out and something presumably not right when a remote last of five finishers at Lingfield (2m, soft) in January; freshened up since and his overall profile in the last year or so is positive.

Would have been beaten by Saint Segal at Ascot (2m1f, good) in November but for that rival's final-fence fall (came third); however, he'd won at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) just eight days earlier and was back on the scoresheet at Ascot (2m3f, good) latest; progressive and could be in the mix.
