Form & Verdict

Dual hurdling winner in 2021; a breakthrough win for this yard had been coming and it arrived on just his second run over fences, at Newton Abbot (2m5f, soft) 13 days ago, where he was good value for that length success; only 4lb higher.

Consistent hurdler who had a decent winter in that discipline; the glaring concern is four heavy defeats over fences and he reportedly didn't enjoy his final chasing experience in November.

Good strike-rate of 5-13 over fences and both the ground (good to soft) and company (Grade 2) were excuses when pulled up at Wincanton in November; a prolific run during the last 12 months has seen his mark rise and he'll need to be right on the ball back from his break after a wind op.

Has a poor strike-rate and she's been soundly beaten on both runs this winter but her fourth placing at Taunton (2m2f, good) three weeks ago was a step back in the right direction and she's 5lb lower than when twice finishing placed last spring (including on heavy); not discounted.

Mixed bag in three chasing efforts; lacked fluency on debut but showed the benefit of that when winning in good style at Exeter in October; hot favourite at Ludlow since but jumping let him down again; strong claims on the winning display and perhaps the return to a stiff track can help.

Won twice on AW in 2022; made successful return to hurdling on handicap debut at Fontwell (2m1f, good) in August when 8lb out of the weights; being 7lb higher this time is not the end of the world and he's had wind surgery since making a noise last time; much depends on how he takes to fences.
