Often attracts support but only win (from 18 starts) came in July last year; good second at Bangor latest and solid claims on that but hard to be confident about him for win purposes.

Kept on well to score by 5l at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in August and has good claims here if judged on that form but has looked out of sorts on both outings this autumn and needs to bounce back.

Both hurdle wins in Ireland during 2019; thereabouts in handicaps at 2m and 2m4f for this yard in the second half of 2023 but well held in latest attempt in November and needs more against unexposed rivals.

Ex-Irish 8yo who started off for Fergal O'Brien with some good efforts over hurdles last summer/autumn and is very well handicapped on old Flat form; not an easy horse to weigh up on this AW debut and is Remie Morgan's first ride under rules but market support should be heeded.

Has done quite well over hurdles and no disgrace when third at Aintree in June; not bred for this trip but could be a factor if staying it.

Won a juvenile hurdle in early 2023 and was placed off mark 1lb higher than today's in Uttoxeter handicap (2m4f, good) last summer; ought to have been more competitive at Cheltenham on latest hurdling start in October, though, and returned from break with underwhelming Flat run last month.

Form & Verdict

Consistent but this month's Flat fourth at Pontefract made it 0-13 for current yard; two good hurdle displays at Cartmel last month show he's in form but receives no respite from the handicapper; may be vulnerable again.

No win since scoring over hurdles here (2m4f, Class 2; from 9lb higher) in March 2022; could strip fitter for recent comeback run (Warwick), while the switch back to fences for the first time in 13 months could potentially rekindle a spark; one to consider.

Won a valuable Killarney handicap in May 2022 (for Joseph O'Brien) but unplaced in ten subsequent starts, the latest seven for this trainer; slightly better when fifth at Cartmel latest but more needed.

Dual Flat (at up to 1m6f) and dual hurdles winner (at up to 2m1f) when trained in Ireland; well beaten in all nine starts for this trainer and plummeting in the handicap; new headgear now tried (has won in blinkers); watching brief advised unless market vibes strong.

His mark continues to tumble and he's worth a market check, but he was pulled up in summer 2022 on his final three runs for Joseph O'Brien and his struggles have continued for this yard.

Won off this mark at Ffos Las in May 2022 but was missing for ten months after that win and has yet to recapture anything like that form in three starts this year; pulled up at Worcester last month after wind surgery; cheekpieces (0-2 in them) return; lot to prove.

No win since May 2022 (2m4f, Ffos Las), and his later form figures are anything but inspiring, pulling up at Worcester last September; returns fresh from further wind surgery on an easing mark; best watched, especially over 2m7f.
