Well beaten in three novice hurdles, last time on stable debut at Kelso (2m, soft); however, he was runner-up in an Irish bumper in 2022 and makes his handicap debut off a modest mark in a weak race; not discounted.

Well beaten in 2m novice here on stable debut in December but 2-2 since switched to handicaps, the latest win gained in very good style at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in February; seemingly on a steep upward curve; major player.

Opened his account with a 25l success at Carlisle (2m1f, heavy) last Monday, on handicap debut and second run for new yard; good chance under 7lb penalty, provided the form is repeated in this different scenario (longer distance, contrasting course and higher grade).

12yo who has a patchy profile this season and was soundly beaten over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago; however, he has plenty of good form here and is 7lb lower than when a good third over C&D (soft) in November; not ruled out.

Good second here (2m3f, good to soft) in December on second handicap start; soundly beaten fourth at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) since but may still be capable of better and perhaps this drop back in trip will help; has run okay on soft ground.

Weakened when upped to 3m on handicap debut at Wetherby last month; however, he showed signs of promise previously in bumpers and novice hurdles, and could be well suited by a stiff test at this trip; interesting.
