Left disappointing stable debut a long way behind when scoring at Doncaster (3m, soft) last month but raced rather lazily before eventually finishing well for third at Newbury (2m6f, good to soft) on latest outing; may benefit from today's step up in trip but it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.

T: Peter Bowen

Bumper winner with a record of 3-7 over hurdles; has taken a while to get the hang of things over fences but he made it sixth-time lucky in this sphere when rallying to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; second run for new yard); now drops back to 2m6f but he's a versatile type who should have more to offer over fences; interesting off only 2lb higher than last time.

Has won a bumper and 3-7 over hurdles; thrown in on that form but he's 0-5 over fences and none of those performances are greatly persuasive; latest (upped to 3m, showed little) was his second run since wind surgery and first since leaving Richard Spencer; recent tongue-tie is removed.

0-8 over fences but went close at Ffos Las (2m5f, heavy) on reappearance; lesser effort at Newbury since came in a deeper race and different headgear; could well rebound in this field with cheekpieces reapplied.

Looked held in second at the final flight at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) last month, when the leader fell and this fellow was hampered and unseated; however, it was still a promising run from this lightly raced 9yo on just his second chase start, and he races off the same mark today; respected.

Did well as a novice hurdler in early 2021, winning on heavy; hasn't really got things going over fences following lengthy breaks and her best form is over shorter (has tried 3m); always a chance that cheekpieces might trigger something better.
