Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish, including running in two Irish points; second at Kelso (2m2f) before winning by a neck last month in three-way finishes at Newcastle (2m1f) and Cartmel (2m); those three novice races on good ground are the entirety of his hurdling career; 2m4f is well worth a go and he makes this chase debut while on the upgrade.

A five-timer last year included three hurdles and two chases; won again in this discipline at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in January before finishing alone in a match; can make mistakes (as was the case when below par last time) but there's no knocking his strike-rate.

Form & Verdict

Made all in novice hurdles over 2m5f on good ground last May and October; pulled up when he tried 3m on soft in January but, after wind surgery, his second of four to a runaway winner on chase debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) one month ago was creditable; should go well.

Went chasing in May, starting with two seconds in small fields and that was up with his best form; not so good since (chase score is now 0-6) and he's not proved himself over this far, with a remote third when he returned to hurdling on latest start; reverts to usual cheekpieces after three goes in blinkers; clear second best on form.

0-6 over fences this season; ran quite well when third of five off today's mark at Stratford (2m6f, good) this month and switches back to hurdling on a good mark but others have more convincing profiles.

Form & Verdict

2-26 over hurdles and the two wins were in novice events in summer 2018; recent hurdles form does not look good enough and he fell on latest start; his eight attempts over fences (latest in October 2021) don't suggest he can defy today's position 13lb out of the handicap.

Hasn't won since 2018; well-beaten third of three from 13lb out of the handicap on return to fences at Hexham in June (2m4f, good); 2lb wrong here; others appeal more.
