Form & Verdict

4lb higher than for Sedgefield win (2m4f, soft) in November; below par next time and not quite back to his best when a beaten favourite back at Sedgefield (2m4f, good to soft) latest; still has each-way claims.

Posted his fourth win at Catterick in December (2m3f, soft) and runner-up there the next twice; races here for the first time but it's been a while since he's run well away from Catterick, which creates a question mark today.

Triple winner over hurdles at up to 2m4f; acts on soft, unproven on heavy; well treated on past form but well below best following a lengthy absence; latest effort was a step back in the right direction though and a revival would not surprise.

Second in this race in 2022 (good) then easily won novice hurdle at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) that March; subsequently absent until soundly beaten at Sedgefield last month but there were signs of promise in that performance and he could show the benefit of the run today; not ruled out.

Made excellent progress in first half of last year, winning five times (2m-2m2f); returned from break with disappointing run last month but his recent Plumpton fourth (2m, soft) was much better, and further improvement from this 6yo is not yet out of the question.

Has dropped out to be tailed off on his last two starts, both on good to soft at 2m1f and 2m3f; however, on his day he can be a very effective front-runner, this place will suit his style (he goes on soft) and he wouldn't be handicapped out of it.
