His Windsor debut in October (1m, good) wasn't without promise; sold out of the Clive Cox yard for 25,000gns later that month; should have more to come.

Form & Verdict

Didn't progress for Kevin Ryan on the Flat but his best form does give him a squeak at this level; pulled up over hurdles on his stable debut last month; others much safer.

Two-time Flat winner who won on his handicap hurdle debut at Doncaster (2m, good) in January, beating a big field with something to spare; also effective on good to soft; unexposed in this code and this 5yo may well take a 7lb rise in his stride.
