Form & Verdict

Improved as a second-season novice hurdler, with the latest of three wins gained in a 2m3f Listed race in February; not disgraced in two subsequent Grade 1 races (2m5f/3m) and has possibilities on today's chasing debut if coping with the drop back to 2m.

Well behind Hermes Allen in the Challow but has improved since and took well to chasing in Ayr handicap (2m, good to soft) on reappearance; could well build on that success and progress further, especially as this return to 2m4f looks a positive; one to consider.

Useful handicap hurdler who did well to finish fourth from out of the weights in Scottish Champion Hurdle here (2m, good) in April; more exposed than some of these but makes chasing debut from a workable mark.

There's no knocking his very solid profile and he ran well to be fourth (beaten about 8l) when 4lb out of the weights in the Scottish Champion Hurdle (2m, good) three weeks ago; however, that run, and others, hint at a vulnerability in this strong a handicap.

Mostly progressive last year with three wins (1m7f/2m, good/good to soft) and maintained the momentum with a near miss at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft); there's no knocking his profile but this represents his toughest test yet from 4lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler who delivered on earlier chasing promise when holding on by a neck to make all in four-runner Ludlow handicap (2m4f, good) last month; probably still on a workable mark after recent 3lb rise and likely to be ridden positively again over today's shorter trip.
