Won his first two races for current yard, both on good ground; no further progress; chance partly depends on whether he's helped by two new factors, namely wind surgery and fitting of tongue-tie.

Nearly won the Sussex Champion Hurdle earlier this year and another good run at Plumpton 19 days ago (2m, good); does seem to like tight tracks and dry ground, so this might not play to his strengths.

Clearcut winner at Kempton (2m, good to soft) in the autumn and bettered that performance when very close second in Sussex Champion Hurdle at Plumpton (2m, good) in April; only 1lb above that mark here but was below form on the Flat last time and has stamina to prove.

Form & Verdict

Hit the ground running for this yard with two wins in July (good/good to soft) and after a blip he's been back in good form the last twice; no reason why he shouldn't be in the thick of things.

Ex-Paul Nicholls; not far away in his first two chases for this yard but offered little the final time; quirky sort who might appreciate this return to hurdling but others are more intriguing.

Quirky customer who might well have gone close last time at Huntingdon (back over fences; 2m4f, good) had he not jumped left and hung left, having been clear at one stage; carries his head awkwardly but that's just him and if getting loose on the lead around here he'd probably go close.

Bang there in her last three runs for Henry Oliver, all 2m handicaps on goodish ground; difficult to call her well handicapped but entitled to give her running once more.

Six hurdle wins, the latest over C&D (good to soft) for Henry Oliver last summer; better effort for James Evans last autumn when fourth over 2m at Ludlow (good) in October; has rejoined Henry Oliver ahead of this first outing for seven months; no great record fresh so might be best watched this time.

Form & Verdict

Ran poorly in his previous handicap but this course winner probably ran better than he ever has when second in a Kempton novice (2m, good) in April; off since but should be fairly treated.

Some notable form to his name last season as a novice; dropped out at Kempton last time after jumping to the right (first-time tongue-tie; has form at that venue) but his two runs before then in fair handicaps were encouraging; another with each-way claims.

Kept on well for near-10l fourth of 13 at Doncaster (2m3f, good) in January, when not helped by mistakes four out and three out; ran well in novices here last season (good/good to soft); tongue-tie goes on; stable form is a positive and today's further step up in trip could be just what he needs.
