Form & Verdict

Always behind in first-time cheekpieces on hurdle debut over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago and has something to prove in this code; however, he's back in blinkers today, in which he won twice on the Flat at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm/soft) this summer, and could produce a much bigger run.

Has won two juvenile events here, the latest in January (1m7f, soft) when 4-9 favourite Teorie pulled too hard and was below-par in fourth; well-beaten sixth in a Listed race here last time (1m7f, soft) and plenty to find with Balboa on that form.

Dual Flat scorer at a modest level; didn't take to cheekpieces here (well behind Union Flag) on hurdles debut; followed that, however, with two C&D wins (soft) with usual blinkers reapplied, latterly making the early running and rallying past Union Flag, before holding off Churchwarden by 1l; improving but this race will demand better still.

Below best on final two Flat starts for Richard Fahey and sold for 10,000gns in September; however, he won an 8.3f novice at Nottingham in August and has run well over 1m2f; has earned a Flat RPR of 77 this year and is not ruled out on this hurdle and stable debut.

Suited by soft ground on turf as he showed when easily winning an uncompetitive novice at Nottingham (1m, heavy) last August; hard to enthuse over following modest efforts on AW in his last three starts, though.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten in September on sole Flat start and same story when fourth of seven on hurdle debut at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft) in August; could do with settling better but the Cartmel form has worked out well and he could be a leading player today in what looks a weak race; a tongue-tie goes on.

Two wins at Hamilton on the Flat this year (1m/1m2f, good to soft/good); with a peak RPR of 73 in that code he's entitled to respect under Brian Hughes in this modest race on his hurdle debut.

Won at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) in May and made virtually all to score over this C&D (good) last month; soft ground may not have suited at Doncaster last time and he might not be far away if back on a better surface.

Fair third of five on the Flat on stable debut in September and soft ground may not have suited at Sedgefield last month on his first hurdle outing; however, he was tailed off at 28-1 and isn't easy to fancy today.
