Half-brother to useful hurdler Mrs Hyde and fairly useful jumper Flementime; joined Paul Nicholls after winning easily by 30l on Irish point debut last April (yielding to soft) and looks by far the most interesting runner in this line-up.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Easy winner of an Irish point and Exeter bumper (heavy) on first two starts; however, turned over at 8-13 on his next three outings and made an underwhelming handicap debut when second favourite at Ascot (2m7f) on latest start, so others are now preferred for win purposes.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to useful hurdler Benson and fairly useful hurdler Clondaw Hollow; arguably shaped with more promise than bare form suggests when tenth of 14 over C&D (good) on debut in November but needs to have taken significant benefit from that outing.

Raced prominently when a C&D winner (good to soft) off 3lb lower in November; respectable effort to be third at Aintree (3m, heavy) next time; below that level twice since, including when second at Wincanton latest; interesting back here with claimer assigned.

Came good at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) in November, his second handicap, and subsequent Aintree third (3m, heavy) was very respectable; below form after jumping left throughout at Hereford in January but can pose a potent threat if he kicks that habit here.
