Debut effort over 1m here last month has been boosted by a couple of those ahead since and, although beaten at a short price, he built on it last time (1m2f); today's longer trip again should be within range on pedigree.

Fair Flat handicapper for Ralph Beckett; has taken well to hurdling with wins in a juvenile event at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft) and a handicap off 10lb lower at Ludlow (2m, soft; won eased down by 19l); showed up well for a long way before being pulled up in the Boodles; worth considering.

His only real blip over hurdles came when tailed off behind Liari on heavy ground at Aintree in December; however, this represents a different test altogether from winning a Class 4 handicap in reapplied cheekpieces at Ludlow three weeks ago (on soft).

Shaped nicely at a big price on his debut in December but didn't build on it last time, when inclined to pull hard; that would be a concern in another small field and he may find life easier in handicaps after today.

No great shakes on the Flat; has raised his profile over hurdles (1-6) and been holding his own behind useful opposition, getting to within 3l of An Bradan Feasa (off level weights) over 2m1f here on soft ground in December and about 5l behind Liari at Musselburgh (reversing placings with his Cheltenham conqueror); he's by no means tilting at windmills, but likely to find a few too good when it matters.
