Form & Verdict

Winning Irish pointer (effective on soft); he's not pulled up any trees in three runs in novice hurdles for current yard but connections waste no time getting over fences and this stamina test should suit; Brian Hughes takes over for this handicap debut and he's interesting.

Low-mileage 7yo who went in at the first time of asking over fences in 3m2f Sedgefield handicap in October; cheekpieces fitted when a good fourth at Market Rasen (3m) 24 days ago so he merits serious consideration eased 1lb with headgear on again.

Two chase wins in January (3m1f on soft and 2m7f on good to soft); ended last season quietly but this race isn't strong and he has gone well after a break in the past; the step up in trip could unlock more from him.

Both hurdle wins on good ground but showed he could get it done on soft when winning a five-runner handicap chase at Hexham (3m) 16 days ago; the third there has won since and a 4lb rise isn't excessive; one to consider.
