Best form to date was in bumpers but ran a pleasing second on his chase debut at Hereford (2m, soft) in January on his final run for Alastair Ralph (sold for £7,000); didn't go unbacked on stable debut over C&D and reportedly had a respiratory issue; can leave that run behind.

Form & Verdict

Nearly landed a big gamble at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month on his fourth chasing start, so it was left to his 22nd outing when he finally got off the mark at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft) 11 days later; back up 5lb today but travelled much the best when leading after two out in that win (kept on when challenged) and may have turned a corner.

Three chase wins this season, the latest gained at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) last month; held narrow advantage before penultimate-fence fall at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) 16 days ago and might still be improving; not yet proven on heavy ground but handles soft well; respected.

Won small-field chases at Uttoxeter this June and September, but those are way in advance of her other performances this year; wore cheekpieces on six of last seven starts, with tongue-tie on last two; clear risks for backers but trainer won this race in 2020 and 2022, latterly with another of today's runners, Family Plot.
