Was back to his last winning mark when getting his head back in front at Newbury (2m7f, good to soft) having stayed on best; back up 6lb and overall profile questions whether he'll be as good again.

Won easily off today's mark on seasonal debut at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) in October and made the frame over C&D the following month but has lost his way a bit since and others here have much less to prove.

Went close in this race a year ago and was very creditable second in major Ascot handicap (3m good to soft) soon afterwards; needs to bounce back from a disappointing run at Newbury in December but is now only 2lb higher than when winning easily on seasonal debut at Ludlow (3m, good to soft).

Form & Verdict

Made excellent progress once upped to about 3m and switched to handicap hurdles last season, winning three times before a very respectable fifth at Cheltenham in April; not bred for chasing but still enters calculations.

Irish point winner in 2021 and 3-6 over hurdles last season; signed off with creditable fourth in competitive Cheltenham handicap (2m4f, good) in April and could easily have untapped potential, both over fences and over staying trips.

Won over fences here (2m3f, good) last November on first course visit and he was back here for the first time since when returning to form with a good second over hurdles (2m7f, good to soft) last month; the visor that went on last time is retained; key player if producing another good run.

Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier hurdling promise when making all to win comfortably by 12l here (3m, good to soft) in April, his second handicap; takes on higher-calibre opposition here but Emma Lavelle is evidently keen to switch him to fences.

Won a 3m handicap hurdle here last April off 8lb lower; had some luck on his side when scraping home at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) on second chase start and has been beaten fair and square in two subsequent runs (2m3f/2m5f); perhaps on a high mark but returning to further is well worth a shot.

Sole hurdle win at 3m; element of good fortune when scraping home at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) on second chase start and a Plumpton fifth next time looks better form now; probably not done with off his current mark.

Form & Verdict

Developed into useful novice hurdler last season, with the latest of his four wins gained in Class 2 handicap at Kempton (2m5f, soft) in March; not particularly impressive when winning Newton Abbot match (2m5f, heavy) on last month's chasing debut but did what he needed to do, and should build on that success.

Useful novice chaser who posted solid placed efforts the last twice (good/soft), including over C&D, and the form has received strong boosts since; attractively weighted off an unaltered mark and he was successful over hurdles on this card 12 months ago; commands major respect.
