Form & Verdict

Took a step in the right direction when fifth of 11 at 80-1 here (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago on his second handicap start; this lightly raced 6yo may have more to offer but he has work to do with reopposing rivals Socks Off and Basford on that latest form.

Bumper winner who ran his best race yet over hurdles when second to Socks Off here (2m4f, soft) on recent handicap debut; the first-time cheekpieces could help him hurdle more fluently and he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Has run three times for his new yard this winter after a long absence, finishing third of 18 at Newcastle (2m4f, good to soft) two starts ago before beating Basford to win here (2m4f, soft); did it cosily last time and a 6lb rise may not prevent a follow-up.

Placed in bumpers and he's on a basement mark over hurdles; however, he's struggled to get competitive over hurdles (including in three handicaps) and the first-time blinkers need to make a big difference.
