Flat-bred 4yo who doesn't have much stamina on the dam's side; weakened on bumper debut at Huntingdon (16-1) and this stiff test raises questions.

Unexposed after only four hurdling starts but was unable to land a significant blow when 66-1 for handicap debut here (2m3f, good; first-time hood) in February; needs to learn to settle better.

Just missed out when favourite for a small-field bumper on debut; has not achieved a great deal since, however.

Form & Verdict

Showed signs of ability, despite finishing a remote third, in newcomers' race at Warwick on debut (heavy) but dropped right out on good ground at Hereford since; looks unlikely after that.

Last of four in an Exeter bumper in February; likely to do better over jumps and with a proper test of stamina; best watched here, though.
