Form & Verdict

Looked promising when beating 16 rivals in a novice at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in November 2021, but has gone badly the wrong way in handicaps since including over fences; returns from 78 days off in a first-time tongue-tie having undergone wind surgery and is down another 5lb, but still difficult to enthuse over.

Third in two of his three bumpers and an encouraging fourth of 14 on hurdles debut at Hereford (2m, good soft) in November, but has regressed in both starts since including on handicap debut at Warwick (2m, soft) last time; however, this half-brother to the stable's smart chaser Cepage may show more now upped in trip.

His breakthrough win had been coming and he duly edged home to get off the mark at Lingfield 18 days ago; that was over 2m6f on heavy but he's fine over this far and a 3lb rise is manageable, especially with the second again running well in defeat earlier this week.

Sole success in 23 starts came when dead-heating at Exeter (2m2f, good) in March; third of five in both starts over 2m here (soft/heavy) in the meantime, but shaped as though worth another go over further last time (has run well over 2m3f); respected back in a Class 5.

Won over hurdles at Exeter (2m2f, dead-heat) in March and he has plenty of form on the Flat including over 1m6f here last spring; hard to rule out a good run back from a break but he's 1-24 under both codes and others are more persuasive.

Showed ability in two of his first three starts over hurdles, as when third of 14 at Warwick (2m5f, good) in March 2021, but was then absent for 730 days before being pulled up on handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, heavy) in March; probably needed it and no surprise were he to perform better, especially if the rain stays away.

Returned from an eight-month absence to make a successful handicap debut at Chepstow (3m, good to soft) last October and, having dropped to the same mark, he ran his best race since when fourth of 14 over the same C&D (good to soft) 11 days ago; visor given a go this time and the drop in trip is the main concern, but still makes more appeal than most.

Both wins at Huntingdon, a bumper and a four-runner maiden hurdle (2m5f, good) a year ago, but lightly raced since; may have found the trip too far and ground too quick when pulled up in a better race at Newbury (3m, good to firm) in February, but despite the drop in grade her claims aren't compelling back from a short break.

Both of her wins (bumper and maiden hurdle) were at this track and they have been her only two visits, the latter two years ago; fair fourth with first-time cheekpieces at Doncaster (3m) in December but back in the doldrums since; visor takes over and she returns to Huntingdon, so there are potential positives.
