Reliable; five chase wins (2m4f-3m1f, and regularly placed); ridden out to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; from a 4lb lower mark) in March, and a respectable second at Market Rasen last time; entitled to respect despite the prospect of drying ground posing a slight risk.

13yo who was soundly beaten at Wincanton last month but that was a 0-135 and he's back down in grade here; good second at Catterick (3m1f, soft) two starts ago on his second stable start and he's also effective on good ground; could have a part to play.

Form & Verdict

Posted some useful novice hurdling form, at up to 2m7f; made a lot of the running on chasing debut 19 days ago but dropped away rapidly; subsequent wind surgery suggests there might have been a problem and he could do much better if that has been rectified.
