T: Jonjo O’Neill

3m point winner who scored on hurdle debut at Ffos Las (2m6f, good to soft) in October and followed up at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) last month, staying on well for narrow verdict from Alcedo; this unbeaten 6yo could prove well suited to today's test of stamina and he's in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Soft-ground bumper winner who improved on that when second under a penalty next time; hurdles debut did not go to plan, when he raced freely (2m3f, good to soft); always prominent when dropped back to 2m (soft) and a ready winner at Exeter latest; penalised for that but a big player back up in trip.

Eyecatching bumper form (on soft) in winning at Hereford and then coming up shy under a penalty behind one who has since finished second in a Listed race; weak 10-1 chance when tailed off on hurdling debut at Chepstow; he's better than that.

Form & Verdict

Placed in a couple of points last season; showed some ability on his hurdling debut at Southwell last month (2m4f, good to soft), when finishing just over 8l behind the reopposing High Treason; some improvement on that would give him each-way claims.
