Form & Verdict

Irish point winner in March 2022 (3m, soft/heavy); has run well enough on occasions to suggest he can pick up a race like this, but is exposed and not proving easy to win with.

Not quite at his best over hurdles a fortnight ago, after a break, but was placed in Class 3 handicap chases at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) and Newbury (2m7f, good to soft) in the autumn and that form makes him of strong interest.

Quite useful at up to 1m4f on the Flat for the Johnstons; bought for £11,000 in October; creditable third at Kempton last week on second run over hurdles (2m, good) and may do better over 2m4f; sets the standard.

Showed promise in Irish points, particularly on final start in April 2022 when coming down at the last when alongside the leader (subsequently quite smart over hurdles); well beaten in a bumper on stable debut but improvement likely.

Two modest efforts over hurdles so far (2m, soft); needs to improve for the step up in trip, good ground and addition of cheekpieces.
