Progressed well in bumpers, winning in convincing style at Fontwell (good) in October; pleasing debut over hurdles six weeks later when second of 13 at Hereford (2m, good) behind a useful rival who has since followed up under a penalty; open to improvement and has rock-solid credentials.

On a recovery mission after dropping out tamely in a 2m4f handicap at Sandown but he was only 4-1 for that after going close in non-handicaps here (1m7f, heavy) and at Kempton (2m, good); he's a bit of a standout on those pieces of form and cheekpieces are unlikely to do him any harm.

Promising type who followed two good-ground wins in bumpers with an excellent third of 12 in a Listed event at Cheltenham (soft; 7-2) in November; he's out of a triple 2m hurdle winner and should certainly make a jumper; very interesting candidate now switched to hurdling.

Useful on the Flat in France last year, winning three times (1m2f-1m4f), but well beaten on both British Flat starts this May/June and folded tamely on hurdling debut over C&D (good; 33-1) six weeks ago; plenty to prove but recent wind surgery may well have had a positive effect.
