Wouldn't want much rain but has turned a corner on his last couple of runs and the front two were nicely on top when edging home at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in July; suffered a wound on his leg which would explain the subsequent break; 5lb higher.

Opened chasing account with wide-margin win in first-time cheekpieces at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in April 2022 but was well below that form on next two outings and didn't get far when returned to Newton Abbot last month; would probably prefer the rain to stay away; others look safer.

Wants good ground and with a tongue-tie replacing his usual hood he ran out a clearcut winner over slightly shorter at Hexham (4lb lower); remains to be seen whether he'll continue the good work as his profile is very up and down.

A maiden after 14 runs but was second three consecutive times over hurdles (1m7f-3m2f; wore cheekpieces) at start of this year and gave pretty good account when second in small-field chase here (3m2f, good; first-time blinkers) last month; suited by good/good to soft; not yet proven on soft.

Ran well in defeat off this mark at Warwick (2m4f, good) in May, form that has been very well advertised by the winner since, but his career strike-rate is now 0-29 and his overall profile remains unconvincing; handles good to soft but seems best on good ground.

Finished a clear second behind a dual subsequent winner at Warwick (2m4f, good) in May but he was back in the doldrums with a pulled-up effort at Newton Abbot last month; has something to prove again after that and he's now 0-28 under rules; first-time visor replaces blinkers.
