Form & Verdict

Won an Irish maiden point (3m, soft) in December 2021; well related and sold for £125,000 last January, before taking minor honours over hurdles this winter over about 2m4f at Uttoxeter and this track; brings significant potential, including with this step up in trip.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Sharp improver this season over fences, winning 2m6f/2m7f handicaps at Newbury (good to soft) before posting his best RPR yet in defeat at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy); now has to bounce back from a complete blowout back at Newbury and his tendency to hang would appear a trait going nowhere, but the ability is there to take a hand; now tongue tied.

Has a most progressive profile and travelled strongly before winning here in November (this distance) and December (2m6f), both on good to soft ground; notched another personal best when second of five at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy) on New Year's Day; may take another step forward and he tops the list, bidding to maintain a 100% record at Newbury.

Form & Verdict

Very much the form pick if judged on what he did last season as a staying chaser; not discredited on reappearance but pulled up in November latest; that sees him back over hurdles for first time since 2020 and he has to be considered.
