Form & Verdict

Didn't live up to market expectations at Newton Abbot last month (after wind surgery); might be happier back up in trip and 3lb drop in the handicap a help; cheekpieces (no help in four previous attempts in them) return.

Doubled his hurdling tally at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July and is now only 2lb above that mark but has become inconsistent this year and others in this line-up appeal more.

Would have won easier at Worcester (2m4f, good) but for some premature easing on the run-in but he went out like a light next time at Uttoxeter; usually consistent in the main and could bounce back from that.

Generally consistent and gained a second hurdle success when overcoming premature easing at Worcester last month; 4lb higher and this looks potentially more competitive but he has to be considered again.

Some improvement when beaten just over 12l in a C&D handicap (soft) last month, not helped by a bad mistake two out; needs further improvement to feature but cheekpieces may spark it.

Maiden; probably took a step forward when third on last month's handicap debut (for Fergal O'Brien, backed); visor worn then replaced by cheekpieces; possibilities as he becomes this partnership's first jumps runner.

Two French Flat wins; improved over hurdles since handicapping and runner-up in her last two starts; not sure the latest of those, over 2m here five weeks ago, was the strongest of contests but it entitles her to respect.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off at Royal Ascot last month (after wind surgery) and three novice hurdle efforts were not exactly spellbinding; recorded a Flat RPR of 98 when winning at Wolverhampton last October (final start for the Johnstons) so this opening handicap hurdle mark really shouldn't tax him unduly; blinkers on and the risk may be rewarded.
