Won a bumper here (2m1f, good) last September and it's still very early days over hurdles, but he's been tailed off on both outings in this discipline (2m/2m4f, good to soft/soft); a major turnaround is required.

Beat useful rival to win small-field course bumper in September but has made a disappointing start to hurdling career; pulled up in first two handicaps (both over 2m1f here); big leap of faith needed to support him.

Placed in his two bumpers (both on good ground) and he was a good second of 18 on recent hurdle debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft); different ground here but he's a key player if handling the conditions.

Sole win was in May 2021 and he's a frequent slow starter; has dropped a long way in the weights but has mixed record under both codes since October and he's been well held (1m4f/1m2f) in last two runs; has plenty to prove now upped to 1m6f and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Has shown ability on the Flat and his recent fourth over C&D (soft; 80-1) was an improved performance on his fourth hurdle start; however, he needs another step forward if he's to come out on top today.

Verdict

This looks to be between Astromachia and PONCHO. The last-named showed improved form when second of 18 at Wincanton on his recent hurdle debut and narrow preference is for this likeable prospect, although Astromachia is a big danger having been runner-up the last twice. Tenfold looks best of the rest.[Ben Hutton]
