Form & Verdict

Made inauspicious start to hurdling career but has fared better on his two recent starts at Fontwell (2m3f/2m5f), keeping on to collect minor prizes on both occasions; probably needs to improve again to make a winning handicap debut but today's trip ought to suit.

Kept on from unlikely position to take 80-1 second here (2m3f, good) last month, his fourth start over hurdles; posed no threat to the clear winner and the value of the form is open to question but, nevertheless, there's a chance he can snatch another minor prize today.

Battled well to prevail at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) last month but has mixed record over hurdles and looked rather laboured before eventually keeping on for fourth at Warwick (3m1f, good) four weeks ago; needs the first-time cheekpieces to help keep the revs up here.

Soundly beaten on both hurdling starts for new stable this year (2m4f/3m) and also struggled on the Flat in between; getting back on good ground ought to aid his cause but he remains difficult to enthuse over; swaps cheekpieces for refitted blinkers.
