Form & Verdict

Makes handicap debut after quite an absence and they were weak 2m4f events that he won at Uttoxeter when last seen in 2021; the cheekpieces worn for those wins are absent; would need to see some confidence behind him, especially with the yard also running Clonakilty.

Form & Verdict

Always had matters in hand when justifying a shade of odds-on favouritism at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) and wasn't disgraced under a penalty at Leicester when the heavy ground might not have suited; entitled to make further progress now handicapping off a fair mark.

Form & Verdict

Looked a nice prospect in winning his bumper and Huntingdon novice event a year ago (2m, good to soft); certainly no backward step when runner-up to an odds-on Irish raider (since purchased by JP McManus) at Wincanton and even better can be expected of him now he's sent beyond 2m for first time.

No win since January 2022 but a very solid sequence this season under Bradley Harris, with last six starts including four seconds; wore cheekpieces last three outings; stayed on well for a close third in the Warwick qualifier four weeks ago but he was no match for Goshhowposh on the run-in at Wincanton time before and a 2lb swing should not be enough to turn the tables.

Runner-up three times in a row this autumn and also ran creditably when upped to 2m7f/3m on last two outings, second again at Wincanton on latest; ridden in all those five races by Bradley Harris; wore cheekpieces last two; while needing respect for consistency, some improvement is needed for a first handicap win.

Point winner who looked promising when landing a novice hurdle at Warwick (2m5f, soft) in February 2021; first-fence faller at Uttoxeter last month when back from a long absence and he may have needed the run when back over hurdles at Chepstow three weeks ago (tailed off); in top hands and has a first-time tongue-tie, but nevertheless has plenty to prove.

Looked very promising during two-race novice hurdle campaign in 2020-21 but wasn't seen again until falling at first fence on last month's chase/handicap debut; quickly switched back to hurdling here and remains unexposed but not an easy horse to weigh up at present.
