Has raced very freely on both hurdling starts but it didn't stop him dominating from the front at Worcester (2m, good) this month; that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he has plenty of scope for further progress and this track ought to suit his running style.

Form & Verdict

Bare form among his hurdle completions in 2021 gives him claims but jumps career was put on hold after he unseated last July; winner of 1m novice on the Flat the following month but mixed since and first-time cheekpieces were no help two weeks ago; hard to predict at present.

Form & Verdict

Won 1m3f maiden on Flat in 2020; nearly took advantage of a drop in the weights at Windsor in April (1m3f, soft) but next effort was lacklustre; dam bred a hurdle winner and one who is 1-1 in bumpers, so it's on the cards he will take to this game.

Looked promising when winning at Naas in May 2022 (1m2f, yielding to soft; useful form) but handicap career in Ireland was disappointing; off since October and the market needs checking on hurdle debut for new yard.

Two 1m4f Flat wins (fair form) in July 2021 and retained ability without winning for the Charltons in 2022; respectable hurdle debut for new yard on first run since, in a better race at Fontwell 24 days ago (2m5f, good), looking as though he'd benefit from the run and a drop in trip; on the premises.
