Placed in both chases in 2021 and chased home a next-time-out winner when back over fences at Uttoxeter (3m, good to soft) five weeks ago; goes well for Isabelle Ryder and ought to be in the thick of things again.

0-10 over hurdles; did pretty well to finish second here on recent chasing debut (2m5f, good), having made a significant jumping error, but the value of that form is open to question.

Has run well in all five chases, winning very narrowly at Newton Abbot (3m2f, heavy) on penultimate start; perhaps a little beneath that level when third at Hexham on latest, with that stiff track finding her out.

0-17 under all codes but hasn't been with Ella Pickard long and has finished second in three recent chases; lost out only narrowly to improved rival over C&D (good to soft; front pair well clear) 11 days ago and gets another chance off the same mark; obvious contender.

Form & Verdict

Came good with soft-ground hurdle win at Worcester (2m7f) in July, his fifth start for Neil Mulholland, and didn't run badly when third at Bangor (2m7f, good) 11 days ago, albeit he was well held in the end; contender if he takes well to fences.

Has won four of his six starts for this yard and never more impressive than last time at Catterick (3m, soft), for all that he beat just two rivals (the runner-up was a penalised last-time-out winner); 6lb rise asks a question but he has to enter the reckoning.

Closely related to useful chaser Mystical Knight; won good-ground maiden point on British debut in May 2022 but managed only third when upped to restricted level in November; probably best watched on rules debut.
