Only 1-11 but he looked good when winning at Stratford last March off just 3lb lower; that was on good ground but he's a strong traveller who ran well on heavy at Haydock two months ago; firmly in the reckoning.

Came good over hurdles at fifth attempt, at Stratford (2m, good to soft) in March, and was third in valuable series final at Haydock (1m7f, good to soft) the following month; jumped poorly and was disappointing favourite on last month's seasonal/chase debut but could still have untapped potential in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Has some good form in notable handicaps off higher marks; not at his best this season as his fourth was remote, was then beaten in a match and tailed off in the Lanzarote at Kempton in which he was sixth and third in previous renewals; has to get back on track, but a soft lead would help matters; handles heavy.

Smart form as recently as last February (2m5f, soft) and his close second in a match at Fontwell (2m1f, heavy) in November wasn't too bad; not seen to good effect in two starts since but this is a drop in class and the competition isn't strong.
