Form & Verdict

Formerly a useful Flat-racer; delivered on Irish hurdling promise when winning by 14l at Fontwell (2m1f, heavy) last month, his third start for Tim Vaughan; that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he's still a key player here.

Ex-Irish; impressive wins at Fontwell (2m1f) and Bangor (2m) this winter from the front in novice hurdles on heavy ground; ridden by 7lb claimer, faded markedly when making his handicap hurdle debut over 2m4f on soft at Aintree, so his stamina has not been proved.

3-20 on the Flat for Jim Goldie, the latest win gained at Ayr (1m5f, heavy; RPR 82) in August; with good stable for hurdling career (same owner) and ought to be competitive at this level if he takes to this game.

Low-mileage 7yo who was evidently well suited by combination of move back up in trip and first-time cheekpieces when scoring at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month, his second handicap; drew well clear of the others there with a dual subsequent winner; must be considered.
