Makes chase debut on first appearance since June 2021; however, he was running well in good-ground points back then and is on a fair mark on his best Irish hurdle form; new trainer can ready one after an absence and he's not ruled out; one to watch in the betting.

Form & Verdict

Has won seven points, two of them small-field events on last two starts; better effort when 0.5l second of three in a ladies open on previous start as the winner is useful and the other runner, who was held when falling at the last, had previously won a maiden hunter chase; the one to beat.

Fair fourth in a Stratford hunter chase last May and has been running reasonably in points this winter; best form has come on good ground so have to be doubts about him on more testing going; non-runner.

Form & Verdict

Fell two out when third and beaten on only previous run in a hunter chase last May (2m6f, good; first-time cheekpieces); mixed form pointing this year, last time finishing 35l last of four in a mixed open on the point course here (3m, good); visor now replaces cheekpieces.

Triple point winner in 2022 and held on for modest third on stable/hurdle debut at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last summer; safely held in two handicap chases in August, though, and not sure to be suited by the slow ground on this first start for six months.
