Form & Verdict

0-8 under rules and doesn't tend to find much at the business end of his races but ran well for a long way when fourth at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) in January, and the first-time tongue-tie might aid his finishing effort here; swaps cheekpieces for first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Jumped well and dominated four-runner chase at Fakenham (good) this month, his second start over fences; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he was heavily backed and is open to significant further improvement if today's different trip-and-ground combination also suits.

Achieved little in novice hurdles, and limited impression on November's handicap/chase debut (3m, good to soft); mark eased 2lb, however, and step up to a marathon trip piques the interest in this nephew of Comply Or Die; yard has a five-year strike-rate of 26% with its chasers here.

Nothing like the force of old but returned from long absence with two close seconds over C&D for new stable this season (soft/heavy), and on both occasions there was a big gap back to the third; will be fine on today's forecast quicker ground; leading contender.
