Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles at Leicester (2m4f, good to firm) last November and he's open to improvement on this second run over fences; February's chase debut at Warwick (2m4f, good) wasn't devoid of promise but he was a well-beaten third of nine and a sizeable step forward is needed.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing over hurdles last season in view of his previous promise in bumpers and on hurdle debut; however, perhaps the switch to fences and/or the first-time hood will help him get back on track, and he's well handicapped if staging a revival; one to watch in the betting.
