Pretty useful Flat winner for Karl Burke in August; jumping let him down when third of five on last month's stable/hurdling debut at Leicester; hood now fitted and has the ability to figure strongly if more fluent.

Won Fontwell maiden (2m1f, good to soft) for Milton Harris last December but he has a mixed record since; wasn't beaten far when third of five at Uttoxeter two weeks ago but he's now 1-11 over hurdles and others are more convincing.

Runner-up in two British starts over C&D (good); this looks easier than the latest of those; sets a clear standard among those with hurdle form.

Became disappointing on the Flat last year; suggested he might be able to win over hurdles when dead-heat third on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in February but next run was a backward step; returns from five-month break; others have more persuasive profiles.

Claims aren't compelling on last year's Flat form and he tailed off on hurdle debut last December; however, this lightly raced 4yo returns to action in first-time cheekpieces and having had wind surgery; not written off.

35,000gns yearling; 14th foal; brother to 7f-1m4f winner Mohican Heights (RPR 104), closely related to three winners including Eye Of The Storm (1m-2m; 114), half-brother to five including three with top RPRs of 117 (Satchem), 114 and 112; that's a superb record for the dam but this is a very late foal and a rare Flat runner for his trainer.

Has just four 6f runs on AW, all of them here and winning one in November; slightly caught on the hop for pace when Hannah's Return kicked away early in the straight but was bearing down on her close home; a strong pace would be a big help and he may yet do better.
