Form & Verdict

Outstanding course record over the last 18 months with four wins and two close seconds from his last six visits; this looks less competitive than several of the races he's won here and very much the one to beat after latest C&D success off 4lb lower mark in October; tongue-tie fitted for first time then stays on.

Form & Verdict

Smart horse at three and four in Britain, rated 108 at his peak; creditable run in 1m4f Royal Ascot handicap as recently as June having bled on his previous start on AW; picked up for 9,000gns in October; couldn't rule him out but hard to know where he's at.

Course winner who has risen 17lb in the ratings since switching to current yard last summer; landed a 1m4f handicap here in September, making all; found a 6lb rise difficult to cope with in two starts since but this trip should suit given he finished a good third at Tramore in July, while he has won twice at 2m over hurdles.

No success since winning his first four hurdle races as a juvenile in 2020; not had that many goes on the Flat, placed in a maiden over this trip and couple of fair runs in 2m handicaps; fitter for recent hurdles outing after a long lay-off but stiff task on AW debut from 6lb out of the handicap.
