Form & Verdict

Hasn't achieved much in two bumpers and four starts over hurdles; tends to be too free (pulled very hard at Uttoxeter last month, on return from a break), and a hood finally applied; risky.

The combination of a first-time hood and more patient tactics were offered as an explanation for the improved form shown when a clearcut winner at Worcester (2m maiden) in September; has run to a similar level (on RPR's) over further since; probably a shade high in the handicap.

No great shakes in Irish points and two bumpers in Britain; tailed off (behind The Geordie Ginge) on hurdling debut last month and not looking likely to live up to his name in the imminent future.

Modest maiden on the Flat (runner-up twice) and showed little in two hurdle efforts (for Polly Gundry) in January; absent since and of interest only if attracting inspired support on debut for Richard Bandey.
