Form & Verdict

Fairly useful at his best on Flat; won hurdling debut at Kempton and made most when second of five at Huntingdon (again 2m on good) later in October; takes a strong hold (despite the hood) and ran poorly on Flat in his sole start on softer than good; the pick on that good-ground hurdles form.

Keen-goer who was fairly useful at his best on the Flat; beat Age Of Sail to make winning hurdling debut at Kempton (2m, good) a fortnight ago, where Tom Cannon initially tried to settle him in rear but allowed him to pull his way into a prominent position before halfway; comes with some risk but still features prominently in calculations.

Patchy form over hurdles this year but he was fourth of seven in a Grade 2 4yo hurdle at Cheltenham in January, and he's on a competitive mark on his best Irish Flat form; respectable run when 10l second of six in a 1m4f AW novice three weeks ago and he's not ruled out.

Fairly useful maiden on his day on Flat, best form 1m4f on soft; had gelding and wind operations afterwards; third at Ludlow on hurdles/stable debut and much better form when 12l fourth of seven in Grade 2 here (2m1f, soft) next time; however, lots to find on that form, whereas he was a flop when favourite at Market Rasen on latest outing.

Improved into fairly useful sort on Flat for Richard Hannon in the summer, off the mark at tenth attempt (unraced beyond 1m2f, effective on range of ground); 72,000gns buy in August and gelded, but he needs to improve markedly after his 13l third of six at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) on hurdling debut.

Peak efforts were narrowly the best Flat form in this field; they were at up to 1m but his running-on second of six on hurdle debut at Newcastle (2m, good to soft) six weeks ago puts him into contention today.

Fair form over hurdles last season, running okay when fourth on handicap debut at Musselburgh (2m1f, good to soft) in March; subsequent Flat efforts nothing to get excited about but he arrrives fit for this hurdle reappearance and may have more to give in this sphere.
