Not beaten far when third of four in Market Rasen maiden (2m4f, good) in April 2021, but the value of that form is open to question and we haven't seen him since.

Displayed improvement when just holding on to make all in Uttoxeter maiden (2m4f, good) six weeks ago, his fourth start over hurdles; probably needs to progress again to make winning handicap debut here but that's possible if the longer trip suits.

Soundly beaten in two maiden hurdles last month (2m1f/2m4f) and comes here with questions to answer, but today's race is easier and he looked promising when winning good-ground Ayr bumper on debut in April; will be feared if strong in the betting.

Workmanlike winner of a good ground bumper at Ayr in April was then well held in a winner's contest at the Curragh and never really sighted when soundly beaten on hurdles debut at Galway recently on softer ground; best watched for now.

0-8 over hurdles and not very consistent but his second of eight off today's mark at Lingfield (2m7f, soft) In November was a good effort, and he was only beaten about 3l when third of four in tactical race over that C&D ten days ago; contender if he takes well to fences at first attempt.

Bettered underwhelming bumper debut when second of 11 in Stratford maiden hurdle (2m, good) in July; didn't get home after racing too freely over 2m2f last month and now moves up in trip again, but can play a significant role if all goes to plan.

Disappointed on hurdling debut in July (2m7f) but last month's Fontwell third (2m1f, good) was much better; that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he might improve again over today's trip.

Performed to a similar level when completing in good-ground bumper and hurdle company; tough mark for chasing/handicap debut but presence of two 2m3f-2m4f winners over fences among siblings is most encouraging.

Very lightly raced 7yo; behind two of today's rivals when modest fifth on hurdling debut at Worcester (2m7f, good; raced freely) last month, but that was his first start since March 2022 and he ought to build on that performance at some stage.

Bought for £45,000 on the back of winning a 3m Irish point on yielding to soft in October 2021; 17-2, never-dangerous sixth of ten in bumper at Stratford (2m, good) in March 2022, which was modest form; off since and has tongue tied; better could be forthcoming and he needs a market check.

Form & Verdict

Looks exposed after ten hurdling runs but has made the frame on four of his five starts this season, most recently when third in Worcester maiden (2m7f, good; first-time visor) three weeks ago; will be fine over this trip and won't mind if there's rain about; tongue-tie/cheekpieces back on today; ought to be in the thick of things again.
