Form & Verdict

Won four consecutive chases in February/March (1m7f-2m1f, good-soft), including C&D event and quite valuable series final, and added another C&D success to his tally last month (good to soft); today's race is stronger, but he might still be improving.

Won four consecutive chases last February/March and added another two wins towards the end of last year; latest 5lb rise demands even more from him but he's versatile regarding ground and may still be improving.

Form & Verdict

Quickly developed into useful novice hurdler last season and was close second in good Uttoxeter novice chase (2m, good to soft) when reappearing in October; not in same form on either subsequent appearance but should be fine on today's ground and remains very much of interest; tongue-tie fitted.
