Ran with some promise in two maiden hurdles and, with a hood applied, he was a 7l third of five on his handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good); no headgear this time but there could be more to come.

0-12 over hurdles (last eight races under Joe Williamson) but last two starts were more like it when fourth over C&D and runner-up in first-time cheekpieces at Cartmel; made most in the latter and there are a few candidates for front-running duties in this line-up but he's a major player if that run is repeated.

Form & Verdict

It was a modest maiden for mares that she won here in April (good to soft) and it was no great surprise to see her struggle under a penalty at Cartmel (beaten about 20l); at least brings some momentum into her handicap debut and this is weak.
