Form & Verdict

Lightly raced and generally very disappointing since launching hurdling career with three wins in 2020 but still had a chance before unseating rider at final fence on recent chasing debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good); 2lb lower today; contender if suited by the step up in trip.

Left clear at final fence to open chasing account in small field here last summer (3m, good to soft); another fair run here in September, given he was hampered, but tailed off on either side of that (hurdles/fences) and couldn't be sure what to expect back from a break.

Form & Verdict

Won comfortably on hurdle debut at Tramore (2m6f, heavy) in January but two heavy defeats followed (the latter his handicap debut); makes chasing debut after 99-day break and with first-time cheekpieces fitted; untested on ground quicker than good to soft; still has plenty of time to get career back on track.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 7yo who won a good-ground maiden hurdle last summer and bumped into a bang-in-form rival when keeping-on second of three on recent chase/handicap debut at Bangor (3m, good); should still have more to offer.

Seemed to give good account when second of three over C&D (good) last June, and got off the mark over fences with quite comfortable win at Fairyhouse (3m, soft to heavy) in November; not seen since a disappointing hurdle run in December but still considered.

Form & Verdict

Safely held on all three hurdling starts this year but ran well to a point in quite competitive race at Hexham (2m, good to soft) last month and has become very well handicapped on some of last year's chase/hurdle form; unraced over this far but has won over 2m6f; dangerous to ignore.
