Form & Verdict

Bumper winner but disappointing over hurdles; no match for a progressive winner (but well clear of the rest) when second at Newton Abbot on last month's chasing debut; jumped stickily early on but fencing improved as race wore on; won't need much in the way of improvement to go very close.

Completed a hat-trick with win at Southwell (3m2f, good) in September on debut for this yard; good second there (3m, good to soft) next time; pulled up at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) 19 days ago but that was an attritional race and it will be no surprise if he bounces back in these calmer waters.

11yo maiden who has been knocking on the door in recent chasing efforts; often makes the running and, though she isn't likely to improve now, is more likely to be involved than many of these.
