Very useful Flat-racer; left Dan Skelton after two disappointing hurdle runs during the winter but won three in a row for new yard this spring (all 2m, good); back in novice company after after comfortable success in Class 3 Aintree handicap last time and ought to be a very tough nut to crack.

J: Aidan Coleman

T: James Owen

Very useful Flat-racer; briefly lost his way after an encouraging first run over hurdles when with Dan Skelton (same owners) but got himself right back on track with a smooth success at Kempton (2m, good; stable debut); should have every chance of defying a penalty in what looks a weaker race.

Won a juvenile hurdle in early 2023 and was placed off mark 1lb higher than today's in Uttoxeter handicap (2m4f, good) last summer; ought to have been more competitive at Cheltenham on latest hurdling start in October, though, and returned from break with underwhelming Flat run last month.
