Form & Verdict

Very useful Flat-racer and looked set for a good first season over hurdles when second to a smart one at Huntingdon in December; disappointing since, though soft ground was an excuse here at Christmas and the tongue-tie tried last time is now replaced by a hood in which he ran well on the Flat; left Dan Skelton but remains with the same owners.

Very useful Flat-racer; left Dan Skelton after two disappointing hurdle runs during the winter but won three in a row for new yard this spring (all 2m, good); back in novice company after after comfortable success in Class 3 Aintree handicap last time and ought to be a very tough nut to crack.

Two Flat wins at 1m4f for the Johnston yard and was useful in that scene; left that yard for only £11,000 on the back of a below-par run but soft ground was probably no help when well held on hurdling debut.

Showed the benefit of a wind op when winning by 13l here (2m1f, soft) on chasing debut in January; probably fortunate to follow up under penalty here a week later (2m1f, good to soft; leader fell at the last) and effectively another 3lb higher now but he should be fine over today's longer trip and remains very much of interest.

Encouraging bumper form (especially on debut) but he faded into a fairly remote fourth on his switch to hurdling at Chepstow (2m3f); perhaps this sharper test will be more to his liking and can go well.
