Unexposed after only four hurdling starts but lacked the pace to land a telling blow when seventh in steadily run Market Rasen handicap (2m2f, good to soft) last month and needs this stiffer stamina test to show him in a better light.

Fifth on both completed hurdle starts and he's not obviously well treated for his handicap debut, but there's potential in his pedigree and his trainer is in fine form; no surprise to see an improved showing; watch market.

Drew nicely clear to open hurdling account at Perth (2m4f, heavy) in September, after a break, but has not kicked on from that success; tailed off over 3m1f at Wincanton last month and now drops back in trip; comes here with a point to prove.

Scored on heavy ground at Perth (2m4f) in the autumn; ended last year with two disappointing efforts but kept on well to go very close at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy; clear leader unseated rider at last) on latest outing and has claims if in the right mood.

15-race maiden, most on Flat; hurdling last five starts, vastly more competitive when third on handicap hurdle debut and unfortunate in seven-runner race at Chepstow (near 2m4f, again heavy) nine days ago as he was about 6l clear when unseating at the last; has the same mark today (due to go up 5lb) so has a big shout if in the same form.
