Form & Verdict

Beaten 32l or more in first four runs but he found improvement on handicap debut when 9l fourth in big field at Exeter (2m, good to soft) 17 days ago; has claims if he can build on that and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in an Irish point and he's shown promise in his three runs under rules, including a clear second in a novice hurdle at Taunton (2m, good to soft) on his recent return after another break; looks interesting now switched to a handicap and he's bred to be better than this opening mark.
