Form & Verdict

Close fourth in a Listed hurdle in one start over hurdles in France and beaten less than a length into second of 12 on his second outing for this yard at Lingfield (2m, good to soft; 7-4) last month; turned over at odds-on in both outings either side including over C&D (good) last time, but perhaps the sound surface wasn't to his liking; still has potential.

Dual course winner, the latest coming over C&D (novices', good, 10-11 favourite) last April; keeping-on second on return from further wind surgery at Huntingdon (2m4f, good; first-time hood, with Master Dancer third) recently; preferred to stablemate In The Air.

Form & Verdict

Improved when switched to hurdles with a tongue-tie added, going close at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in October and finishing third of 12 at Ascot (2m5f, good to soft) the following month, but was pulled up in a Class 2 novice at Kempton (2m, soft) on Boxing Day; back in much calmer water here, but he may not want the ground too testing; no tongue-tie today.

Pulled up when back in a handicap at Sandown last month; however, that was a hotter race than this and he'd previously shown improved form in these cheekpieces, winning a Ludlow maiden (2m5f, soft) then a Leicester novice (2m4f, soft); also effective on good/good to soft; not ruled out.

Beaten six times over hurdles (including two handicaps) before going 2-2 in the cheekpieces, winning easily at Ludlow before defying a penalty with an all-out defeat of Roger Pol at Leicester (2m4f, soft); likeable type who can run well but ultimately come up short.

Nicely bred gelding who showed some ability in his first two starts (2m, good to soft) when in the care of Joe Tizzard; still open to progress for new yard (same owners), but improvement will probably be needed.

Placed in his first two handicaps late last year including when beaten a neck at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) in December, but has twice blown out on soft/heavy over 2m/2m4f since (tongue tied last time); still has stamina to prove and wouldn't want much more rain.

Very lightly raced 8yo; beaten 39l or more in her first three runs but she looked a different proposition on handicap debut when a close second over C&D (heavy; 4-1) in November; returns after another break but she's open to more progress and is an interesting contender.

Little in sole bumper start and on hurdle debut, but appeared to take a big step forward when running on past flagging rivals to finish second of ten here (2m6f, good; 250-1) last month, beaten 13l by the winner; not sure how solid the form is and the performance didn't suggest dropping in trip would be ideal.
