No match for easy winner when second at Plumpton this month, having refused to settle in first-time blinkers, but was first past the post in cheekpieces at Taunton (3m, good to soft; demoted to second) two starts ago and the cheekpieces are back on here; player if handling the forecast fast ground.

Form & Verdict

Not beaten too far at Ffos Las two outings ago but not much in a pair of other handicaps; better chances back in maiden company and perhaps fitting of a tongue-strap can provoke improvement; trainer in fine form.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner and showed enough over hurdles there last year to hold strong claims in this; hasn't progressed, however, and tailed off at Tramore last month when the subject of a gamble; can be too free and hood a possible help on British debut; still has a bit to prove.
