Won twice over this trip in UK, including on AW; hasn't run since disappointing in July but has won when fresh before and can't rule out on debut for a new yard.

C&D winner last October on sole run for Brian Ellison and followed up when easily winning on stable debut at Musselburgh (2m) in May; having gone up 11lb he was only third of four at Hamilton last time but that slowly run 1m5f was against him and he's not discounted now back up in trip.

Has a chance on his fourth at Carlisle last August (2m1f, good); won over hurdles next time, but rather in-and-out form over jumps since (poor run last time); perhaps best watched.

Runner-up in selling handicap hurdle last month but well beaten on the Flat twice since, and his record over fences is not convincing; blinkers fitted for first time since 2021; too risky.

Form & Verdict

Generally in fine form this year, winning over hurdles at Catterick in February followed by three wins over 2m on the AW (went up 14lb); reportedly hung badly left-handed when last of five on latest start (AW) but could bounce back.

Won two small-field events here last spring, the latter over C&D, and will be fine on today's ground but hasn't shown a great deal on his three starts this year; needs a good boost from the first-time blinkers.

Ex-Andrew Balding; nine-race maiden who has been placed six times from 1m2f up to 1m4f, but below-par when tried at 1m6f (soft ground probably against him); interesting up in trip on stable debut.
