Form & Verdict

13-race maiden who left Warren Greatrex for £2,500 in October; best form in bumpers but there's hurdles form too which gives him a chance, including from stable debut six days ago when he was favourite for nine-runner handicap at Southwell (3m, good to soft) and travelled up best to lead before falling two out; will be 5lb higher for future engagements and needs great respect despite the quick turnaround and shorter trip.
