Form & Verdict

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.

Form & Verdict

Won his last two completions at 2m, over hurdles and fences (both on good), looking on the upgrade in the latest of them at Huntingdon last February; can run off the same mark now back hurdling and had novice form at 2m3f; of interest back from another wind surgery.

Form & Verdict

Hurdle and chase successes on ground ranging from good to soft; winner of one course start, over fences in 2020, and well handicapped on much of his form at about 2m4f; some way off his best on last two starts, though, and blinkers worn once last winter weren't much help.

Two hurdle wins at about 2m4f last spring, on soft and good; below that level this winter and still 5lb higher than his latest win but he ran up against one who was well ahead of his mark (now 15lb higher) at Plumpton in February and that won't be the case today; on the premises.
