Go back far enough and he's well handicapped but it's been a while since he ran a race of note; unconvincing with cheekpieces back on; will at least handle the ground.

Won in the refitted cheekpieces at Wincanton in February (2m5f, heavy; 7lb lower) but that's his only good run in the last 12 months and he's since pulled up; capable but hard to trust.

Form & Verdict

Positive efforts in two 2m novices (good to soft; short in the market both times) and, in a first-time tongue-tie, he was only 5l away when dividing subsequent winners on his handicap debut at Ascot (2m7f, good); solid claims with a repeat of that and he should have more to offer to boot; heavy ground is the grey area.

It took six attempts to win an Irish point; this mark looks high enough for his modest achievements to date over hurdles (2m5f-3m) but handicap newcomers from this yard are a dangerous species; tries cheekpieces.

Quirky sort but he has won a pair of selling hurdles this term, blinkered when just holding on at Southwell (2m) a month ago on his final run for Olly Murphy; likely to need more now sent into a handicap for stable debut but he does go on heavy.

It wasn't a strong maiden hurdle for mares that she won at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) but impressed with her finishing effort there; will stay further but sticks to the same trip for handicap debut and looks sure to go well; unraced on heavy but fine on soft.
