Form & Verdict

Returned to form and dominated from the front at Newton Abbot (2m1f, soft) last month, scoring by 21l in the end, and confirmed his wellbeing with emphatic Flat success a fortnight later; went up 13lb for the hurdle win but commands respect in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Showed some fairly useful form on the Flat in Ireland last year and bettered his low-key stable/hurdle debut when fourth in recent Worcester maiden (2m, good); should have more to offer in handicap hurdles; interesting.

Has some useful Irish Flat form on his CV and is 2-6 over hurdles since joining Dan Skelton, the latter win gained in C&D handicap ten weeks ago (made all); seemed to enjoy the run of the race that day but could still have a biggger performance in him.

Only win was quite comfortable in a 1m7f soft-ground handicap at Wincanton last season; perhaps better again when third after a break at Kempton (2m, good) as he wasn't best positioned when the tempo increased; that run can be upgraded and he ran well in this 12 months ago, finishing second to Zucayan.

Partnered by Lily Jones on five of his six starts (once over hurdles) since switching to current stable and has been placed twice this year, more recently when third to Harbour Vision at Wolverhampton (9.4f) a fortnight ago; may not be ideally suited by this drop back in trip, though.

Off the mark (19th attempt) when scoring over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November but he's not easy to predict and was tailed off at Doncaster last time; now makes his chase debut after another break and he needs to bounce back near his best.
