The Chepstow maiden (2m3f) in which he finished third was an ordinary race and this 6yo hasn't progressed from winning his bumper; perhaps this is his trip for now.

£65,000 3yo; promising debut at Ffos Las last month, when staying on strongly late on (plenty of stamina in pedigree); the winner has let down the form since but today's more gruelling conditions should suit.

Form & Verdict

Impressed when winning maiden point (2m4f, good to soft) by 25l for Tim Ellis in April and changed hands for £135,000 soon afterwards; brother to a bumper winner and needs to be taken very seriously on rules debut.

Showed something in a bumper on debut and, having weakened badly (2m4f/2m7f) on first two starts over hurdles, he sprung a 50-1 surprise when leading after two out in 11-runner novice at Chepstow (2m, heavy) three weeks ago and going on to win by nearly 10l; another step forward is needed on this handicap debut but it's very hard to rule out.
