Won three consecutive 2m novice hurdles at Hexham (good/good to soft) between March and September last year; not at best in two handicaps since but he has edged down the weights and now returns from two months off; bred to be suited by this longer trip and could still be unexposed.

No longer the force of old but was second off 3lb higher here (3m1f, good to soft) in November and both subsequent runs (2m4f/2m3f) were arguably a fair bit better than the distances she was beaten might suggest; swaps cheekpieces for refitted blinkers; can't be ruled out.

His win in this two years ago was the first leg of a hat-trick; back on a really good mark but plenty of water has since passed under the bridge and he's been off since October when running a quiet race at Kelso.

Held back by slow starts on the Flat this summer and hasn't taken to fences this month, following a less-than-fluent round of jumping on his first attempt at Sedgefield by refusing at Carlisle; wouldn't be a shock if he revived back hurdling (very well treated on his best form) but he's not that convincing at present.

Didn't run badly when 16l third of five on recent chasing debut at Sedgefield (2m5f, good), and there's room for improvement; his mark continues to edge downwards and he's won twice here on the Flat, but he's perhaps best watched until showing greater proficiency in the jumping department.

Form & Verdict

Both hurdles wins at around 2m4f and he's only 2lb higher than for the second of those at Ayr in December 2021; however, he has not repeated that form twice since, including after wind surgery on reappearance; hood returns.

Edged home off 1lb lower at Doncaster last March (2m3f, good) but he suffered a heavy fall next time and hasn't got his mojo back in three subsequent starts; however, didn't run too badly last time at Huntingdon and cheekpieces could give him a lift.
