Form & Verdict

Quite useful on the Flat for Alan King (also won a C&D maiden hurdle for him); bought for 6,000gns in October and well beaten in first-time tongue-tie (retained) on stable debut at Market Rasen last month; worth considering off this 3lb lower mark.

Left some very uninspiring AW form behind when respectable fourth on hurdling return at Worcester (2m, good) last month but is not sure to be suited by today's move back up in trip and others have more persuasive profiles; most turf form is on good ground; once ran well on good to soft.

Hurdles winner who has finished runner-up in three of his five completed starts over fences, including when beaten a neck at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago (clear of the third); 4lb rise not the end of the world, though he still has to prove himself on soft ground or worse.
