Sold for £200,000 after winning by 5l on debut in an Irish maiden point (3m, yielding) in March; went very close on rules debut in novice hurdle at Ascot (1m7f, soft) three weeks ago, when clear with the Nicky Henderson-trained 6-5 favourite, and that sets a good standard.

Best to forgive his Grade 1 effort on Boxing Day (lost his action); has solid form otherwise and that defeat is flanked by all-the-way wins at Huntingdon (2m, good/good to soft), both by 14l; seems to handle soft; should rate higher still in the right scenario but chance may partly depend on whether he's able to dominate in the same comfortable manner, which isn't guaranteed in this field.

Easy winner at Doncaster and enhanced his reputation when second at Taunton (soft) and Cheltenham, both against rivals who are serious contenders for Graded-race novice honours this week; those three novice races were over about 2m3f-2m4f and he's a clear candidate for further improvement on this handicap debut for stable which has tasted plenty of success in this race.

Questionable what he achieved in winning at Fontwell on Boxing Day (soft) and has come up short in his two handicaps, though being too free out in front was no help when a weakener on heavy ground at Lingfield the last time; a return to colder tactics could benefit but others appeal more in this deeper race.
