Form & Verdict

Quite useful on the Flat for Harry and Roger Charlton, latest win coming at Goodwood in August (2m, good; cheekpieces); promise on both runs over hurdles although needs to improve on latest 21l fourth at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft); interesting with cheekpieces on for first time over hurdles.

Useful stayer on the Flat; looks all about stamina over hurdles, having rallied to win a 2m4f maiden at Market Rasen (good to soft) and again doing his best work late to finish a well-held fourth on handicap debut at Sandown (2m4f); this longer trip should suit him well and he's in the mix.

Closely matched with Guard The Moon on their bumper clash over 2m here in December and, like his conqueror, has since improved for going further over hurdles; was clear of the rest behind a talented horse at Doncaster a month ago (2m3f, soft); every chance.

Won the second of two Irish point starts, in February, and bought for £75,000 soon after; mixed messages from the form but out of a dam who is a half-sister to several winners and he represents a yard that has plenty of success in bumpers; market should tell more.

Comfortable 20-1 winner of a ten-runner novice handicap at Ludlow (2m, soft) where he came from off the pace despite jumping out to the left at times; the Bangor race a week later when penalised no doubt came too soon; 10lb higher than Ludlow but he's lightly raced; likely contender provided he stays.
