Form & Verdict

Useful eight-time Flat winner in Germany and he went very close in a Group 3 there (soft) in the spring; couldn't justify favouritism on his hurdling/stable debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) 12 days ago but he finished a close third of 11 and has leading claims if he can build on that.

Went very close in German Group 3 last April; won a novice hurdle in October but has struggled in that code since and may be best watched now back on the Flat for stable debut; has had wind op; tongue-tie goes on.

Big improvement when a runaway winner of a Kilbeggan maiden (2m2f, good to yielding) in June; sets the standard on that form but she's not come close to that level in five runs since and needs a major upturn in form.

Showed some ability in bumpers but she fell on her hurdling debut at Kempton in March before a well-held sixth of nine over C&D (good) the following month; has plenty to find on her return and minor handicaps will be more suitable.

Beaten 27l on her previous run beyond 2m but the minimum trip looked too short when a never-dangerous fourth here in February (soft), where she rallied after looking as though she'd get tailed off at one point; whether she'll stay this far remains to be seen.

Home-bred half-brother to hurdle winner Abingworth and his dam won five times on slow ground in this sphere; made an encouraging debut when second of four in a Newton Abbot bumper (2m1f, good) in July and he looks interesting on this switch to jumps.

Second in a point bumper (good to firm) in February but he was tailed off at Huntingdon next time and has been pulled up in both runs over hurdles (2m5f/2m3f) since; cheekpices are now added on this drop to 2m.
