Off the mark over hurdles at the 18th attempt when landing a Stratford maiden (2m6f) a week ago; fortune on his side then but still ran well; 7lb penalty but ahead of the game, if the win is taken literally; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Maiden; last month's fourth at Plumpton proves he has ability but has run out twice over hurdles and recent chasing debut ended at the first fence; could be a threat if staying this trip but definite element of risk.

Mixed form since winning at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) in November on second chase start but he was a good second at Wincanton (3m1f, heavy) last time and that form was franked by the winner; capable of a bold show.

Jumped well and made all at Plumpton (near 2m4f, good to soft) in November on second start over fences; right out of form on next outings but there was a partial recovery when these cheekpieces were enlisted at Wincanton (15l second) latest, so he's considered in this weak race.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last October, including over C&D; not at his best in two outings this spring and should have done better back on good ground at Plumpton latest; cheekpieces (0-6 in them) back on.

Long way behind Hello Sunshine here last month but soft ground has never suited; judged on his two wins (3m1f/3m2f, both under Niall Houlihan) last October, he comes firmly into the reckoning.

Narrowly beaten in a Fakenham chase this month (3m5f); can race off 10lb lower mark back hurdling but yet to win in this discipline and was well held in both handicap attempts last summer.
