Form & Verdict

Ended his losing run with a last-gasp victory over C&D 12 days ago (no hurdles in the straight due to low sun); not an obvious one to follow up but recent solid form is sparse in this field and at least his wellbeing is in no doubt.

Form & Verdict

Some promise in bumpers and again in his first two hurdle starts; satisfactory third on his handicap debut here 17 days ago (2m, good to firm) when shaping as though this longer trip would help; one of the likelier winners.

Has the ability to win races of this nature but he is 0-10 and let one slip through the net at Ffos Las in June (2m4f, good), having tanked through the race; more place money on the cards but others might see things out with more gusto.

Two-time Flat winner who got off the mark over hurdles in this race 12 months ago (off a 4lb higher mark); it has been a struggle since then but no surprise to see a revival in this uncompetitive event.

Well beaten in three novice hurdles last summer (100-1 each time); handicap debut after ten months off and a lot to prove but step up in trip should suit, on pedigree; probably needs a check in the betting.
