Form & Verdict

Seeking a four-timer after winning at Exeter (2m5f, heavy), Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) and Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in the space of four weeks; latest start was just four days ago, he can race off the same mark today and the runner-up (who won her previous start) finished clear of the third; big chance if that has not taken too much out of him.

Chancing his arm at 3m2f didn't come off last month but previously in fine form this year, winning first four starts at about 2m5f (heavy and good to soft) then running at least as well in defeat at Chepstow in March; should go well again if latest run hasn't taken the sting out of him.

Off the mark in a 16-runner handicap at Hereford (2m3f, soft) for conditional jockeys in clearcut style; only third off the same mark at Sedgefield nine days later, however, and has now been raised 8lb.

Scored at Hereford (2m3f, soft) in early 2023 and was still in good form at end of last season (2m4f-2m5f) but makes stable debut after 11-month absence and the drop back in trip may not be ideal.

Second in an Irish point; latest start was his closest finish in three novice hurdles but he was still beaten 27l when seventh of 13 in that maiden at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft); no solid form claims but it's always possible that this handicap debut will see him in a new light.
