Very lightly raced 8yo who kept on well to dead-heat for first on handicap debut at Fontwell (2m3f) on Boxing Day; good second of 12 over C&D (again good to soft) 16 days ago; up another 4lb but firmly in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Sole win (20 races) was over fences in 2022; bits of hurdles form last year give him a chance, including his second over C&D (good) four months ago when last seen; sole run on soft (2021) was a heavy defeat.

16l off the winner when runner-up in a novice hurdle; beaten about a distance in his two handicaps (2m4f; tongue tied latest) but was only 5-1 last time at Uttoxeter and he made a pretty serious mid-race mistake; that was in July but may yet do better.

Form & Verdict

Has fared a lot better over hurdles than in bumpers, finishing third at Market Rasen on both attempts (2m5f and 3m); reportedly made a respiratory noise in June latest; improvement is needed on this switch to handicaps but it looks like he stays.

Won on sole point start; showed promise in his second hurdle race, which he did not improve on next time (2m1f; favourite at Sedgefield) but it would not be a great shock were he to come into his own when tongue tied first time over this very different trip on handicap debut.

Runner-up on Irish point debut in February but has struggled to get competitive in his bumper or three attempts over hurdles; hood joined tongue-tie for last two starts; had wind surgery since latest and this is handicap debut, so he's worth a market check despite the lack of solid form.
