Third at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in January, his second start over hurdles, then displayed significant jolt of improvement to win readily by 15l there (2m3f, good to soft) last month; sets a useful standard.

Novice hurdling campaign ended in solid fashion, winning in good style at Lingfield and Market Rasen then creditable third at Ayr (2m4f); may well progress further and do well in handicaps this term; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Listed bumper winner who was close second on hurdling debut at Lingfield in December and didn't need to improve to win a lesser race pretty comfortably at Exeter (also 2m, good to soft) last month; has a bit to find on the figures with Hourvari here but still has significant potential.

Listed bumper winner in 2021 and won two of four hurdle races last season, including on her only start in cheekpieces, which return today; reappeared with another 2m handicap win (Hereford) and, bred to be suited by at least 2m4f, she was a hot favourite when upped to that trip at Cheltenham in December, only to unseat two out when challenging; can make amends, with plenty more to offer over this sort of trip.
