Campaigned mostly over hurdles since joining Adrian Keatley; was booked for second-place (at best) when taking a late fall at Southwell three weeks ago; switches back to the Flat in a newly applied visor; was previously effective on the AW at Dundalk, but difficult to know what to expect.

Won a Market Rasen handicap (2m, good) on his second run for this yard and was a close second there (soft) next time; his form cooled at Perth (2m4f) 19 days ago but he didn't seem to get home at that new trip and has leading form claims back in a 2m novice; respected.

J: Charlie Price

T: Bernard Llewellyn

Three AW wins at up to 2m in his Irish days; he used to be useful in that sphere and although he's gone the wrong over the last year, there have been only four runs over hurdles; needs much better than his fourth of seven on handicap hurdle debut (2m; 16-1) last time but this is a longer trip.
