Form & Verdict

17-race maiden under both codes and has finished a well-held fifth over hurdles (2m1f, good to soft) and on the Flat (2m, soft) in his two runs this autumn; visor is now tried and he needs to significantly raise his game back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Showed some promise in bumpers but he's struggled at big prices in his four hurdle runs including a Taunton handicap (2m3f, good to soft) in January; dropped 5lb but he needs a tongue-tie to make a big difference after 290 days off.

Off the mark at the 16th attempt when when justifying support in a Stratford handicap (2m, good; 5-1) 12 days ago; up 5lb but that was a comfortable success in a big field and he looks worth another try at this sort of trip; respected.

5-25 over jumps, including two wins last autumn; not seen since an unseat in November; only three runs on Flat, easily the best of those on first occasion when second in a Leicester maiden (1m2f, soft); needs to build on that but this is his Flat handicap debut and he needs a close look.

Seven-race maiden but he went very close off this mark in a big field at Fontwell (2m5f, good to soft) in January and ended last season with a respectable effort at Market Rasen (2m7f); yard is in good form and he needs a close look on his return to action.
