Form & Verdict

Talented Flat performer with four wins; successful debut for Archie Watson at Ripon in April (RPR 107) and another fine display when second at Sandown two outings ago; transfer that ability to hurdling and most of these won't see which way he goes.

Broke more alertly to make all on stable debut at Ripon (1m4f, soft) in April when returning from an absence and wind surgery; never seriously involved, though, when 33-1 at Royal Ascot (1m6f, good; unraced on firmer) 17 days ago; appeared to stay 1m6f when fourth at Goodwood in 2021 but this is his first go at 2m and he steps out of handicaps.

Broke more alertly to make all on stable debut at Ripon (1m4f, soft) in April, when returning from an absence and wind surgery; enjoyed the run of the race and this is much hotter, but it remains to be seen how far he can go for this yard; has won on good ground, unraced on faster.

Form & Verdict

Two C&D wins last month and ran well in a Perth handicap latest; 12lb penalty for the wins but the only one in this field with concrete hurdling form, which should stand him in good stead.

Won a low-grade AW handicap in April and minor honours over C&D for new yard in his two starts switched to hurdling recently; needs to find extra and the tongue-tie he wore on last six Flat starts is restored; he also wore cheekpieces in those Flat runs but that remains absent.

Six-race maiden but he showed some promise in bumpers and his best effort from three hurdle runs was a rallying fourth in a novice here (2m, good) last month; beaten 32l then but possible improver now handicapping.
