Form & Verdict

Made quite promising chase/handicap debut for the Greenall and Guerriero stable in January but again raced too freely when tailed off in his second chase and has since changed hands; reverts to hurdling and is 4lb out of the weights for today's stable debut but might settle better in the first-time hood and it will be interesting to see what Ben Pauling can do with him.

May not be straightforward but was given nicely judged ride by Dylan Whelan to win at Southwell (2m, good) on Monday and is now 2-5 for Ben Pauling; still has fairly low mileage; respected under penalty.

Came good over hurdles at eighth attempt, with clearcut success in 17-runner handicap at Doncaster (2m, good) in January; safely held in third twice since but both those races were won by absurdly well handicapped horses; copes with soft ground (untested on heavy); must be considered.

His form has been up and down and he was a soundly beaten third at Doncaster (2m, good) last month; however, prior to that he won a big-field handicap over that C&D (good) and was runner-up on soft ground earlier in the season; capable of a bold show if at his best.

Form & Verdict

Showed no significant promise in three novice hurdles in the autumn but travelled strongly for a long way and only weakened out of contention after last flight when fourth on handicap debut at Newcastle (2m1f, good to soft) in February; can be very dangerous here if he settles just a bit better in the early stages.
