Comfortably won British maiden point (2m4f, soft) in January on his second start and changed hands for £35,000 later that month; brings potential to this rules debut and he's firmly in calculations.

Promising second on debut in Newcastle bumper (2m, good to soft) last December; didn't really build on that when seventh at Ayr (2m, good) in April but he retains potential and Jonjo O'Neill has an eyecatching 25% strike-rate here in last five seasons; the betting may be informative on hurdle debut.

Respectable efforts in all three hurdles, bumping into a smart one at Warwick (2m3f, soft) and it was a strong novice in which he finished an 8l fourth over C&D last month; the winner nearly won the valuable EBF Final at Sandown next time; this could be his best opportunity yet; had wind surgery and now tongue tied.

Form & Verdict

Two-time chase winner who ran well over fences at Wetherby (3m, soft) in March on his final outing for the Hobbs/White stable; showed promise over hurdles early in career and he has strong claims if transferring his chasing ability back to this sphere; goes without headgear on stable debut.

Runner-up here last autumn on his three bumper starts (2m1f, good to soft-heavy) and fair third of six on hurdle debut in warm novice at Sandown (2m, good to soft) in February; there's room for improvement in his jumping and he's one to consider on this reappearance.
