Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish pointer (in the frame all three starts); has proved better over hurdles, winning in good style on debut at Kelso (2m, good to soft) before finishing a fine third in a Listed novice at Haydock (1m7f, soft); the step up in trip should suit and he can go well again.

Two wins towards the end of last year from first three hurdle starts (2m/2m4f, good to soft) and went very close on handicap debut at Perth (2m4f, good to soft) in April when last seen; Lucinda Russell excels with chasers and this soft-ground point runner-up could improve now tackling fences.

Highly tried the last twice in Grade 2s and kept digging to finish third at Kelso (2m2f, good to soft) most recently and that's strong form, with the front two not disgraced in the Grade 1 Tolworth earlier this season and the fourth winning a Grade 1 novice chase at Punchestown on Tuesday; looks well handicapped and returning to this longer trip is very much in his favour.
