Form & Verdict

Experienced campaigner who has been running creditably in defeat this season, latterly finishing fourth at Taunton (2m3f, good); his consistency means the handicapper does him few favours but he is reliable and should give his running again.

Five wins over hurdles from 2m to 3m, the first of which was at this track and the latest was in March 2023; below form last term and Tuesday's run at Ffos Las off this career-low mark needs improving on markedly.

Off the mark at the 11th time of asking over hurdles when winning a 2m4f handicap at Ayr (good) in May; pulled up switched backed to fences (jumped poorly on second start in that sphere) in October and no surprise to see him back hurdling; good chance on that Ayr form and Luca Morgan is a positive jockey booking.

Not nearly as good over hurdles as on the Flat and latest effort in the latter discipline, admittedly against strong opposition, was disappointing; cheekpieces enlisted on this return to jumping (unplaced in seven starts over hurdles).

Good enough to win a Group 2 on the Flat in France when owned by Godolphin; went 0-12 over hurdles for two previous yards but he's come good for this one with back-to-back Taunton wins (2m3f, good; 3m/good to soft); raised 20lb for those but something has clicked and deeper ground here will be no hardship.

Made just a fairly encouraging seasonal/stable debut in October but displayed big jolt of improvement to win easily by 13l here (2m3f, good) a fortnight ago; hiked up 13lb for that and has stamina to prove over new trip today but ought to handle the slower ground and commands respect.
