Form & Verdict

Has an inconsistent profile and is untested at this trip, but he may have needed his reappearance run at Sedgefield in October and he's 7lb lower than when runner-up over fences at Hexham (1m7f, soft) last November; sole win came over hurdles (2m1f, soft) and he's not written off.

Battled on well to land a gamble over C&D (heavy; front pair clear) in December and probably bettered that performance when following up on good ground here nine days later; on career-high mark now but commands respect.

Respectable fourth on rules debut at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) last month and second of six at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) last time; those were weak races but he goes handicapping off a fair mark and is open to improvement.

Form & Verdict

Third in heavy-ground bumper here in March and he was in contention when falling two out at Hexham (2m, soft) in October on his second hurdle start; somewhat underwhelming when fifth there (2m, heavy) next time but he could be on a good mark for his handicap debut, especially now up in trip.

No match for the winner when second on handicap debut at Bangor (2m7f, good to soft) in March, when last seen, but that was still a pretty promising effort; has also shown ability on soft going; this lightly raced 7yo is with a top northern stable and could have more to offer.
