Form & Verdict

Successful at the second attempt for this yard when producing a strong finish to win over C&D last month (beat Monty's Award who is 11lb better off today); good second at Ludlow 11 days later but he will need another surge of progress to come out on top today.

0-6 over fences earlier in career but highly progressive over hurdles since joining this yard last season; in good form in that sphere the last twice and has a 9lb lower mark to work with now back chasing; course hurdle form figures read 112; very interesting.

Form & Verdict

Point winner who made a successful rules/stable debut in a 2m4f maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter two years ago; no progress since and well beaten at Ludlow on last month's return from 11 months off; likely to stay but might need more help from the handicapper.

Handicap on last three outings, best of those when second of eight at Huntingdon (3m1f, good to soft) last time; needs better than that and his 2020 maiden win remains clearly his best form.

Form & Verdict

Wins over 3m2f at Fontwell and C&D in October, both on good ground; no match for Loup De Maulde here last month but 11lb better off with that rival today; should give his running again.
