Form & Verdict

Some solid form in handicap hurdles last season (including on soft) and he kept on for a fair third of six on his chase and seasonal debut at Hereford (2m5f, good) in October; this first crack at a staying trip is well worth a go and he's on the shortlist.

Point runner-up and two-time hurdle winner who needs to improve upon what he's shown on his first two chase starts, but it wasn't a bad run at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and his stable has been in fine form this month; not discounted in first-time cheekpieces.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.

Runs off same mark as when winning at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) in February 2021, after a similar absence to today's, and he's one to watch in the betting on stable debut; however, his jumping was an issue when below par on his final three runs for Evan Williams last winter; sold for £5,000 in May.
