Runner-up in Irish maiden point (3m, soft) last November on his second start and changed hands for £95,000 six days later; absent since but brings potential to this rules debut and no surprise to see a good run.

Form & Verdict

Won all three bumpers; brought along steadily over hurdles, winning emphatically at Carlisle on second attempt (2m1f, heavy) and the step up to 2m4f wasn't too much like hard work when long odds-on at Sedgefield (soft); has more to do today but not seen the best of him yet.

3-3 in bumpers and 2-5 hurdling; no match for the winner on last two starts but did well to rally for second of eight on handicap debut here (heavy) last time and this first foray beyond 2m5f under rules holds possibilities; Luke Scott, who rode for his last bumper win, returns; not dismissed.

Eventually got up for second against a useful one in a Ffos Las bumper on debut; again outpaced from fair way out at Chepstow (good to soft) in April; this extra test can suit now hurdling but the sharp track might not be ideal.

Placed in his two bumpers and took further minor honours at Southwell (2m5f, good to soft; best form) and Leicester (2m4f, heavy) over hurdles; a respiratory issue was reported last time and he now has his tongue tied; needs major overall improvement to beat Navajo Indy.

Dam well beaten in bumpers, half-sister to winners Romeo Brown (2m-3m1f hurdle) and Seven Arches (bumper); showed some promise in the second of two points; lack of experience likely to cost him on hurdle debut.

Fifth of 16 at Kilbeggan (yielding) in May on bumper debut but sold for 1,200gns after two lesser efforts; 150-1, hooded for stable/hurdle debut in C&D maiden (good to soft) six weeks ago but that heavy defeat seemed to confirm he's best watched for now.
