Won twice over hurdles in the spring (2m4f/2m5f) and came good over fences at Wincanton (2m4f, heavy) three weeks ago; recent 7lb rise asks quite a lot of him but he has possibilities if suited by today's step up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Won two hurdles in early 2022, over 2m3f (good to soft) and 2m (soft); no progress in handicaps since and his chase debut fourth at Taunton was just mildly encouraging (tongue-tie/blinkers retained but cheekpieces discarded); down in class but probably needs more.

On a low mark after not going on in handicap hurdles; some mild promise on his chase debut at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) in March but he jumped right and was a tired horse in the straight on Warwick comeback (favourite); capable of better on a sharp right-handed track.

Beat a subsequently very useful type in sole Irish point (yielding to soft); won minor 2m5f hurdle (good) for this yard in May but his chase debut at Warwick didn't go to plan and he was pulled up after making a bad blunder four out; too soon to write off and the return to shorter may suit.
