Form & Verdict

Ascot winner who chased home the smart Brechin Castle on final bumper start in a Listed race at Cheltenham; bumped into another good one in last week's Cheltenham winner Gidleigh Park on his hurdling debut at Newbury (2m4f, soft) and he should be winning this without too much trouble.

Second in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham before going hurdling; no match for good prospect Gidleigh Park on hurdling debut at Newbury (2m4f, soft; looked green) and easily went one better when 2-13 at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) five days ago; one of two who dominate calculations in this field.
