0-10, but both career seconds have been gained here this year, including over C&D last month (good; headed after last but kept on); respected, so long as a brief chasing debut latest is forgiven (lost action).

Form & Verdict

Defied a 1lb lower mark at Stratford (2m, good) almost a year ago, and has almost held on back up in trip at Fontwell since; sufficiently match-ready from the Flat (all 12 career wins gained after absences of under 48 days), and chance so long as conditions remain no slower than good.

Prolific winner in Jersey (mainly on the Flat) who has finished second on his last three hurdling starts, most recently at Hereford (2m3f, good) last month; more exposed than some of these, though, and today's slower ground may not be ideal.

So nearly shed the maiden tag in a Stratford seller in April, granted heavy ground and 2m4f (once factoring in rail adjustments); mark never lower, but could usefully use slower conditions than likely await.

18-race maiden; some fair form, including last time when third over 2m2f here (good); back after a break on this stable debut with no headgear (has been tried in cheekpieces and a tongue-tie); probably best watched.

Form & Verdict

Chance on his peak late-2021 novice hurdle form for Alan King (2m); offering nothing under either code for current connections when last seen in the winter, and prospects likely rest with the wind surgery since.

Following wind surgery he was a fair fourth over hurdles on his reappearance at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) in September; however, he has a patchy profile nowadays and this ex-Flat performer was an early faller on his sole chase start back in April 2022.

Transformed by wind surgery and a change of scenery to run away with a Southwell novice handicap (2m, good) on his first run for a year; challenging 10lb rise to consider, but notable Brian Hughes keeps the ride.
