Runner-up at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) in June and bounced back from lesser run at Southwell with fair fourth at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good); however, he has a very poor strike-rate and may again find a few too good.

Form & Verdict

Failed to progress in handicaps for Harry Whittington but he dropped down the weights and his new trainer does well with recruits from other stables; has had a second wind op since his last run in March; interesting on stable debut, especially if strong in the betting.

Narrowly to justify heavy market support on stable debut at Stratford (2m, good; behind Tally's Son) and pulling hard perhaps contributed to a slipping saddle there next time; possibilities.

After his Leicester second worked out so well he was sent off a warm order over 1m7f here a month ago (heavy) and rallied bravely to gain a deserved first success; the runner-up went one better at Uttoxeter on Saturday; respected off 6lb higher and he stays this far.

Has the ability to win races of this nature but he is 0-10 and let one slip through the net at Ffos Las in June (2m4f, good), having tanked through the race; more place money on the cards but others might see things out with more gusto.

T: Seamus Mullins

Last raced on the Flat in 2022, when seen to best effect over 2m on AW; while there have been two wins over hurdles since, his latest start in that sphere (last October) was a heavy defeat and there is a great deal for him to prove on ground softer than good.

Struggled on last two starts in May/June but on a good mark on his form for David Thompson as recently as last October, and perhaps he'll have been revived by a change of scenery; watch the betting on stable debut.

His mark continues to tumble and the return to hurdles may be a plus, but it's a long time since he showed any worthwhile form and he needs a major turnaround in the first-time cheekpieces and reapplied tongue-tie.
