Won a low-grade AW handicap in April and minor honours over C&D for new yard in his two starts switched to hurdling recently; needs to find extra and the tongue-tie he wore on last six Flat starts is restored; he also wore cheekpieces in those Flat runs but that remains absent.

Form & Verdict

Struggled at Bath last week but that was in the mud and he'd been in good form at a low level on AW beforehand; higher in the weights now but this C&D winner has the services of Oisin Murphy in the saddle and looks much safer than most.

Thrown in on his best course form but three runs here this year have seen him finish out the back; blinkers tried today (has worn other headgear with limited success) but still easy enough to take on.
