Not seen since a disappointing effort on New Year's Eve but is lightly raced for his age and won a competitive race at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft) when fresh last autumn; will be dangerous if back on song.

Won first time out last term but two disappointments followed; back with a bang after 11 months off when winning by a whisker at Doncaster two months ago, which sees him back up 1lb today; not dismissed but two withdrawals (ground) from 3m races last term mean he goes into unknown territory today beyond an extended 2m4f.

Form & Verdict

Useful Flat-racer who scored on last month's hurdling return at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) and is now 3-7 in this sphere; could plausibly have untapped potential over today's longer trip and is likely to give this a good shot from the front.

Flopped at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day when the trip and ground shouldn't have been an issue; in good form previously, however, winning at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) before a short-head defeat at Doncaster (2m3f, good), and he can be in the mix if leaving last time behind.

Form & Verdict

Absent since struggling in a Cartmel chase in May and has become unreliable but is now 9lb lower than when second over C&D (good) just under a year ago and will be a threat to all if six-month break has done him good.

Hurdle and chase successes on ground ranging from good to soft; winner of one course start, over fences in 2020, and well handicapped on much of his form at about 2m4f; some way off his best on last two starts, though, and blinkers worn once last winter weren't much help.

Six rules wins divided between hurdles and fences; back hurdling the last twice, not beaten far when third of six at Doncaster (2m3f, good) and heavy ground was an excuse last time (has won on soft); very well handicapped on some of his form.

Form & Verdict

Created good impression when winning easily on rules debut at Ffos Las (2m, soft) in November 2022; suffered heavy defeats on other two starts last season but ran well before getting very tired in Sandown slog on second occasion; makes handicap debut here; still has potential.
