It's hard to say he has any solid form after his two Irish maidens, a juvenile hurdle and 1m3f novice on Kempton AW; wore tongue-tie (returns today) and cheekpieces on second start; handicap debut.

Lightly raced 4yo formerly with Joseph O'Brien; tongue-tie reapplied when he came from off the pace to make successful handicap debut at Chelmsford (1m5f) four weeks ago; just 3lb higher and there's probably more to come from him over this far.

Probably stays 1m4f, unraced beyond that; sole win (16 races) was over 1m2f here for Gay Kelleway last February; safely held on both starts (20-1 and 50-1) for new stable but down to a dangerous mark and has first-time visor.

Sole success in 19 starts came here (1m2f) a year ago, but in the frame on 11 occasions and placed in last three starts on Polytrack (1m5f-2m) since the visor went on; another big run likely; stable also runs Good Time Ahead.

Just one win from 18 starts but he's got back on track with runner-up efforts at Chelmsford (1m5f) and over C&D (second-time visor) the last twice; that was an eyecatching run behind a major improver last week and he's unexposed at staying trips; interesting contender.

Losing run goes back two years; has mostly run over further for this yard but he's run respectably in defeat at about 1m5f of late and refitting cheekpieces could help, having run three of his best races in them.

Six months off before sent handicapping this winter and he's been much improved; won well at Wolverhampton (1m6f) two weeks ago and followed up by a short head when 4-7 over C&D last Thursday; raised another 3lb today but with a big plus in the lack of compelling recent form among his rivals.

Off the mark with 5l win at Wolverhampton (1m6f) last month and he followed up with brave success at Chelmsford (1m5f) six days later; still has potential as a stayer but he was disappointing back at Chelmsford (well-held sixth) last time and has something to prove after that.
