Fair maiden at up to 1m on the Flat but was well below form on Polytrack last week and he struggled in his only previous hurdle run (2m, good) in March; new equipment is now tried back in this sphere and others are preferred.

Runner-up in his first bumper and has shaped with promise in two hurdle runs this year, most recently when 9l fifth at Kempton (2m, good) two weeks ago; this doesn't look as tough; leading contender for in-form yard.

Battled on well to win from the front at Hereford (2m, good) in November, after a break, and his second at Fakenham (2m, good to soft) a fortnight later was also a good effort, but he moves up from Class 5 today and others appeal more; cheekpieces (worn once over hurdles last May) refitted.

Promising third on debut in a Bangor bumper (2m, good) last April; held as favourite there on his return in the autumn (respectable effort) and not his fault when he fell at the first on his hurdling debut (badly hampered) in October; returns after another absence but he should have a future in this sphere and is respected.
