Form & Verdict

Didn't go on in two bumpers after making a winning debut here and, having undergone wind surgery, finished sixth of nine on hurdles debut at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) four weeks ago; that was a much stronger race than this one, though, and he should be capable of better on this slower surface.

The deep ground proved too much for him in a 3m Grade 2 novice at Haydock in February (pulled up); looked promising previously, winning two in a row at Chepstow (2m3f, soft/heavy) then staying-on third in Grade 2 novice at Cheltenham (2m4f, good to soft); retains potential for his top yard.

Only sixth here in October and all his other runs have been at Chepstow; impressive in winning his last two (2m3f; soft/heavy), though the two horses who chased him home last time have since come up short in fairly ordinary maidens; chasing will be his game further down the line and others appeal as more likely winners of this.

Better could have been expected on last month's handicap debut at Sandown (2m4f, soft); however this lightly raced 5yo wears first-time cheekpieces today and showed promise when making the frame in two maiden hurdles at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft/soft) in the autumn; not written off.

Fell on second hurdle start but he showed no ill effects when staying on stoutly to win at Chepstow in January and he gave a genuine display in defeat at Taunton (2m3f, soft) 18 days ago, where first-time cheekpieces (retained) seemed neither here nor there; solid claims.
