Form & Verdict

0-4 on the Flat in Ireland and same story over hurdles for current yard but he's been progressive in this sphere and was a creditable second at Bangor (2m, good) last month; his jumping still has room for improvement but he sets the standard on his latest form and this step back up in trip could suit; key player.

Has not progressed since last June's quite impressive 2m4f course maiden win (good ground) and was no match for winner when remote second over C&D (heavy) this month, but today's less testing ground ought to suit him better and he's on a good mark now.

Lost his way a bit after last June's quite impressive course maiden win (2m4f, good), and finished very tired (albeit on heavy ground) when upped to 3m at Wincanton last month; continues to edge down the weights but others here have more pressing claims.

Pulled up in both Irish points and he's 0-5 over hurdles; promising second in a 2m4f maiden here (good) in June but he's not gone on from that and was disappointing at Uttoxeter last week; bit to prove but he raced freely last time and this drop back to 2m is worth exploring.
