Beat a subsequent hurdle winner when landing his Irish point; found a weak race in which to make his hurdling debut at Fontwell (2m1f, soft) and duly justified short odds; now penalised in a much stronger contest and others hold greater appeal.

Won an Irish point and 2m1f Fontwell maiden hurdle; creditable second over about 2m4f on next two starts, both on soft or heavy, but pulled up when 6-1 for handicap/seasonal debut at Aintree (3m; dropped away after three out) four weeks ago; it will be interesting to see if his backers return.

Form & Verdict

The form of his second at Chepstow in December (2m3f, good to soft) makes for good reading in this company but it's been rather underwhelming in the meantime, with him never dangerous at all when a well-held fourth at Taunton latterly (2m3f); going further should help, as may this galloping track; solid chance if at his best.

Reportedly has to go right-handed and both wins have come in novice events at Taunton (soft/good to soft), latterly at the expense of Aurigny Mill (by 5l); may need further progress to defy this mark on handicap debut and chasing is on the agenda according to the trainer's recent Stable Tour.
