Form & Verdict

Displayed big jolt of improvement when runner-up in first-time cheekpieces here (2m3f, heavy) in December, his second hurdling start; that's the best form on offer here but his two subsequent runs were underwhelming (2m5f/2m3f); tries a new trip today.

Placed on Irish point debut last spring and on first two hurdling starts, both at Hereford (2m3f, good) in November; unseated rider mid-race when upped to 2m7f for recent handicap debut but could still have untapped potential over this sort of trip; unraced on ground other than good.

Form & Verdict

Showed some fair form over hurdles last season, most notably when very close second in Doncaster handicap (3m, good), but chasing has not gone to plan this term and he didn't really fire when reverted to hurdling two starts ago; cheekpieces removed after one use; needs to get career back on track.

Led close home to win good-ground Fakenham bumper for Milton Harris in April 2022 and, following a long absence, made encouraging late headway to take fourth in Plumpton maiden hurdle (2m4f, soft) for Anthony Charlton last month; moves up in trip for today's stable but open to improvement.
