Form & Verdict

Made the frame in all three handicap hurdles this season, most recently when second at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in January; 1lb lower for today's chasing debut and has strong claims here if she takes to fences.

Won on chasing debut in March but hasn't really progressed; well held at Uttoxeter latest (after wind surgery); probably needs the step up in trip (stayed this far over hurdles) to unlock some improvement.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten at triple-digit odds in three maiden/novice hurdles and his tendency to race too freely is a concern but today's switch to a low-grade handicap chase may enable him to get more competitive.

Below par the last twice and particularly disappointing at Taunton last month when making it 0-10; however, perhaps the first-time hood will help and a case can be made judged on his close third at Doncaster (2m, good) last November; also effective on soft ground.

Succumbed only in closing stages when close third on chasing debut at Doncaster (2m, good) in November and a subsequent lesser effort on heavy ground can be overlooked; will be fine on this right-handed track and goes on the shortlist; tongue-tie fitted for first time.

Made it 3-9 over fences when keeping on well to score in reapplied cheekpieces at Southwell (2m, soft; Superstylin third) 16 days ago; up 3lb but that was a personal best last time and her first chase win came over C&D; key player.

Won two in a row last spring (2m1f, soft/heavy) and has worked her way back into form this term, finishing a close third of six at Catterick (2m3f, soft) latest; this drop back in trip may help and cheekpieces return for first time since March 2022 (often ran well in them); one to consider.
