Came clear in useful Bangor bumper in October 2022 (good to soft); not seen again until finishing remote on hurdle debut last month but although no match for eyecatching winner at Hereford since (2m3f, good; first-time tongue-tie retained) she fared a lot better in third; can step up on that.

Came clear in useful Bangor bumper (good to soft) in autumn 2022; progressive over hurdles since returning from a year off, making a successful quick switch to handicap company over 2m4f at Southwell (good to soft) nine days ago; that was a conditional jockeys' event so she escapes a penalty; strong claims.

Remote fourth over hurdles at Stratford (2m) this month, albeit seemed to need the run having been absent for just over a year; now goes in tongue-tie; ready winner of Bangor bumper (2m, good to soft; rules debut) last autumn and has leading claims on that form.

2m4f-plus on a flat track appear to be optimum requirements, and granted these he laid down a good marker on last month's seasonal/stable debut at Southwell (good to soft); not hard done to by a 2lb re-raise.

Second in his only bumper and third in two maiden hurdles; favourite for handicap debut in eight-runner race here (2m4f, good to soft) on latest outing but was floundering before the home straight and finished more than 20l behind the first two; needs much better than that and cheekpieces go on for yard among the winners.

Minor promise in two Irish hurdles (2m4f and 2m) in the autumn; highly tried on recent British debut, when taking on a hotpot at Newbury, but he shaped with some promise even so and this is far more realistic; not ruled out on handicap debut.

Favourably treated on a good run of form over 2m in early 2023, including on soft ground, but hasn't done as well in his three most recent starts, over hurdles or on the Flat; the step up to 2m4f adds another query.

Has rather mixed record since winning Fakenham maiden on stable debut in early 2022 and took heavy fall in early stages of Southwell handicap last month but his fourth at Lingfield (2m, soft; unraced on heavy) two starts ago was a fairly good effort and he's a major player in this grade; swaps cheekpieces for first-time blinkers.

Often leads; had a lean spell in the spring but he ended a losing spell at Uttoxeter in September (2m4f, soft) and only just failed to follow up over C&D (good) next time; lesser efforts since, however, and needs to improve for having a tongue-tie added.
