Seen far more often over hurdles (winner on varied ground); has lost his way in that discipline but he was a smooth 2m winner on the Kempton AW in March on his only Flat start since 2021; 4lb higher today but could have more to offer in this sphere and is one to consider.

Quirky customer who might well have gone close last time at Huntingdon (back over fences; 2m4f, good) had he not jumped left and hung left, having been clear at one stage; carries his head awkwardly but that's just him and if getting loose on the lead around here he'd probably go close.

Well held back on the Flat last time; flopped at very short price on most recent hurdles start (showed signs of heat stress); otherwise a fairly progressive juvenile hurdler this term, winning twice; may bounce back.
