Form & Verdict

Well beaten at huge odds in three Irish maiden hurdles last February and always towards rear on stable/handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in October; still very unexposed, though, and worth a glance in the betting; upped in trip and fitted with tongue-tie/cheekpieces here.

Won twice when fitted with blinkers in September (2m7f/3m2f) and looked as good as ever when second at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) last month; not one to rely upon heavily but will be fine on today's ground and features prominently in calculations.
