Form & Verdict

Very useful at up to 1m6f on the Flat and he won on his hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in September; this is a tougher test of his credentials and he may need further at some point, but he has obvious potential in this code given his Flat ability; has run well on slow ground on the Flat.

Goes well at Doncaster where he perhaps handled the testing conditions better than his rivals when storming to a 10l success there last week (1m4f); clearly a strong contender under a penalty if as good again, and he's the only runner with some recent match practice.

Latest Flat win nearly three years ago; taken time to get his eye in on the AW this winter but on a useful mark now and he did well to finish as close as he did at Wolverhampton (about 1m) before Christmas; the return to further can suit; of interest despite lack of course experience.

2-2, the wins coming in an Irish maiden point (3m, soft to heavy) in February and a novice hurdle at Fakenham (2m, good) last month; he could do with settling better but he won with plenty in hand last time and it remains to be seen where his limitations lie.

Front-runner who has to go left handed and this sharp track will suit his style; however, after a typically bold ride, he ended up a weary fourth in the Arkle and there'll be no easy lead here with fellow trail-blazer Nickle Back in opposition.

Form & Verdict

Two-time bumper winners (1m7f, soft) who made all on his hurdle debut at Bangor (2m, good) in September 2021; sustained an injury in that race and has been off since; the absence is a concern but he's in good hands and is a strong candidate if he retains his previous promise.

Won on debut in Catterick bumper (1m7f, good to soft) and bounced back from March flop when scoring in a first-time tongue-tie (retained) on last month's hurdle debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft); this is a hotter race but he's open to further improvement for his top stable.

Nicely bred (dam a bumper winner out of a half-sister to the yard's high-class Clever Cookie) and he made a clearcut winning start at Sedgefield (good to soft; 5-1) ten weeks ago, making all; should make his presence felt under a penalty.
