Form & Verdict

Third in Grade 2 bumper at Aintree (2m1f, good to soft) last April and won readily on hurdle debut at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) in November; he could do with jumping with greater fluency but he's a useful prospect and holds leading claims under a 7lb penalty.

Placed in a Grade 2 bumper; will need to jump better than at Newbury last time (2m) but returning to further will help after winning his two previous races at about this distance (heavy/soft), latterly narrowly repelling subsequent Ascot winner Pic Roc who was receiving 6lb; has been well found in the market but for good reason.

Placed in final two bumpers last spring (both good to soft); only fifth on hurdle debut at Newbury (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago but that was a warm race and he's open to improvement; could be a player.

A better horse now than when behind Fire Flyer in December; only narrowly outpointed by the penalised Hasthing at Catterick (soft) before a strong finish saw him get the better of the smart Inthewaterside (also penalised) in a 2m3f novice at Ascot (good to soft); improving all the time and has to rate a strong contender.

Placed in two bumpers last spring (both on good to soft) and has since laid a sound foundation for his hurdling career, giving the impression he might have won at Catterick (2m3f, soft; first two well clear) five weeks ago with a slicker jump at the last; likely to continue on an upward curve.

Easily won British maiden point (2m4f, soft) on debut last April and made it 2-2 in bumper here (1m7f, good to soft) in November; beat only three rivals last time and the strength of the form is questionable, but this longer trip promises to suit on hurdle debut and he certainly has potential.

Pulled up/tailed off on two of her three hurdle starts, and her close sixth of seven at Catterick (2m3f, heavy) in between represents dubious form given the slow pace; however, she showed some ability there, and also some in points, and she's not ruled out off a basement mark on handicap debut.
