Came good for William Young with front-running win at Wetherby (2m, good) in March and was second on his next two outings (2m/2m4f) but he hasn't really fired lately and is not the percentage call here.

All four wins have been on good ground including two at at Kelso (2m5f/2m2f) in September; his last success was off 1lb higher but he's been well held back on slow ground in his last three runs and conditions could be an issue again here.

Two wins at Kelso (2m5f/2m2f, good) in September and he may return to form when back on good ground; however, better could still have been expected at Kelso (2m, good to soft) and Ayr (2m, good to soft) the last twice.

Form & Verdict

Dual bumper winner in 2021-22 season; bled from the nose and disappointing in all three hurdling starts last season but returned from break with two encouraging fourths at Perth last month (2m4f/2m); has plenty of scope for further progress in handicaps providing bleeding issues don't resurface.

Lacked fluency and very disappointing favourite on recent chasing debut but had run well in defeat over hurdles at Tramore (2m5f, soft) ten days earlier and has claims if handling the forecast faster ground.

Appeared to have a bit left in the tank when scoring off 3lb lower over C&D (good to soft) in May but not much has gone to plan since and pulled up after racing too freely at Hexham on Wednesday; comes with risk.

Won off this mark over hurdles at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) in May and he seems versatile ground-wise; however, this 11yo hasn't been at his best more recently and needs to produce a bigger run on this belated chase debut.

Form & Verdict

Failed to complete consecutive chases towards the end of last season and was well beaten here (2m6f) when reverting to hurdling in May; returns with questions to answer but might have been refreshed by a four-month break; sports first-time cheekpieces.

Best run back hurdling this season when 10l fourth of eight over an extended 2m4f at Newcastle (good) just before Christmas; has stamina to prove (fell before halfway previous attempt over 3m under rules) but being dropped another 4lb can only help.
