Won on chase debut at Newbury (2m, soft) in December and made it 2-2 over fences when following up there (2m, soft) in January, when miles clear with a runner-up who went one better next time; hurdle wins came over 2m3f/2m4f on good to soft; could still be well treated up 8lb for last time.

Form & Verdict

Second in a bumper and 8-13 when he made a winning hurdle debut at Uttoxeter last June; no match for an easy winner at Wetherby (again 2m on good) when next seen five weeks ago, with tongue tied first time, but beat the rest and this longer trip should be a help on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Only five runs, spread over more than two years and all on softer than good; finally lived up to his debut promise when winning an eight-runner handicap over nearly 2m4f here (soft) 13 days ago, always prominent with tongue tied first time; that was also second run since wind surgery; saw it out well as the front two drew clear and needs respect despite 6lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Thoroughly outclassed his three rivals at Doncaster (2m3f, good) in December, making all, but tailed off on good to soft for handicap debut over that same C&D (6-1) on New Year's Day; could still prove capable of better if back on good ground today.
