Continued his steady progress when off the mark over hurdles at Fakenham (2m maiden, good; 11-10 favourite) six weeks ago; penalised accordingly in a slightly stronger novices' contest; high on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Had plenty of chances now but has proven consistent and it's unlikely there's anything of the calibre of Naqeeb in opposition this time (clear second to him over C&D latest); vulnerable to improvers now but is more likely than not to give her running.

Has gone close first time out the previous two seasons but each time over a deal further and was very expensive to follow last year; this is tougher coming back out of handicaps and racing over shy of 1m for the first time, without the usual hood.

Showed some ability when fourth of six on her Windsor debut (1m2f, good to soft) in August, but well held at Kempton (1m4f, Polytrack) the following month; hood enlisted on return from three months off and she needs to bounce back, though her dam won twice over C&D which offers some hope.

5-25 over jumps, including two wins last autumn; not seen since an unseat in November; only three runs on Flat, easily the best of those on first occasion when second in a Leicester maiden (1m2f, soft); needs to build on that but this is his Flat handicap debut and he needs a close look.
