Form & Verdict

Has run in a bumper and three novice hurdles, best last time when front-running third of 11 at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft) and he rallied well, so this longer trip may well suit; major player.

Form & Verdict

Twice narrowly beaten in maiden events over about 2m6f on good ground in May; went out like a light when favourite at Southwell next time but good third of six in 2m4f handicap here (soft) on latest start puts him back into serious calculations; recent cheekpieces/blinkers are replaced by a visor; 17 races without a win is the main worry.
