Form & Verdict

Rallied gamely to win Uttoxeter novice (2m4f, soft) in March and probably bettered that form when close second on handicap debut at Wetherby (2m5f, good to soft) the following month; moves up in trip again; good chance.

Won on soft ground in March, unraced on heavy; upped to 3m this season for front-running novice wins at Southwell (good) and Cheltenham (good to soft); in the latter he rallied well to regain the lead in the final strides, so looks a thorough stayer at the trip; needs further improvement in this handicap but has more to give with serious stamina tests.

Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when drawing clear to win by 10l at Worcester (2m7f, good) in May, his second start over hurdles; that form already makes him a leading contender here and he's open to further progress.

Nicely progressive since the cheekpieces went on, following two Kempton wins (one a handicap off 8lb lower) with an excellent second in a 3m Grade 2 novice at Cheltenham in December (soft); got outpaced on good ground in another Grade 2 at Doncaster in January and that's forgiven; much better can be expected this afternoon.

Perked up the application of cheekpieces to win comfortably on consecutive visits to Kempton, a 2m5f novice (good) and 3m handicap (good to soft); surpassed all that when keeping on for second behind a smart prospect of Nicky Henderson's in a 3m soft-ground Grade 2 at Cheltenham (raced prominently); that form is right up there and he stays well.

Has raced only on good ground or good to soft; 3-5 over hurdles, firmly in charge with cheekpieces at Kempton on last two outings; the latest was over 3m on handicap debut, in just a five-runner race but that's the best form in this line-up.

Out of a 2m3f hurdle winner; seemingly in process of making promising debut before slipping up on home turn in Worcester bumper in May 2022 but we haven't seen him again since and he has a good standard to reach on this hurdling debut.

Form & Verdict

Came good over hurdles at third attempt for Sam Thomas last season, with clearcut success in Chepstow maiden (2m3f, soft) in March; changed hands for £70,000 in May; likely to encounter quicker ground on this seasonal/stable debut but ought to play a significant role.
