Won a selling hurdle (2m3f, good) for David Pipe last November but well below his best form on the Flat since for Tony Newcombe; new stable could turn things around but what he'll make of fences is anyone's guess.

Runner-up over fences on stable debut last September but three heavy defeats have followed, the latest over hurdles this month; drying ground might aid his cause but he has too much to prove; swaps blinkers for first-time visor here; tongue-tie removed.

A fair 2m3f hurdles winner for David Pipe in 2022 but his form has nosedived in three runs over fences for his current yard this term, pulled up at Ludlow last time; reverts to hurdles with something to prove.

Form & Verdict

The blinkers worked well initially (second then first) but last year ended prematurely after two modest efforts in July/August and, in no headgear, his return here over hurdles was very underwhelming; minor form in three chase starts during 2021.

Form & Verdict

24lb out of the weights when running surprisingly well at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last week, though only three ran and the chances are the bare form flatters him; this should confirm one way or another, but he's 19lb lower this time so has to be taken seriously.

Seemed to excel himself when second of three from a long way out of the handicap at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month but was grossly flattered by his proximity to idling winner and the form looks somewhat dubious; soundly beaten off correct mark since; others preferred.

Went the wrong way in his three chasing starts but down the weights in this sphere as well and was far more competitive when returned to hurdling at Market Rasen 18 days ago; that was his fourth second in this sphere (sole win was in a bumper) and he should be a big player again.
