Landed a gamble for previous Irish stable when reportedly enjoying the drier ground over 3m at Ludlow (good to soft; these aids combined for first time), where he was up in the van throughout and won by 4.5l; raised 6lb and interesting to see what Gary Moore can do with him.

Something to prove after stopping quickly on his return but he was consistent in handicaps last season (2m2f-2m4f) and this longer trip shouldn't b an issue on breeding; possibilities.

Form & Verdict

Has often been prominent in the betting but remains a maiden, albeit a lightly raced one; made the frame on all four hurdling starts last season (including a 2m5f handicap here) and shaped as though the run would bring him on at Chepstow (2m3f) four weeks ago; Flat-bred but started off in points and he now goes this far for the first time.
