Form & Verdict

Made pretty good progress from lowly opening mark last year and went very close here when upped to 1m6f in September; struggled to cope with heavy ground when tried over 2m in October but could still have untapped potential over staying trips as a 4yo; player if revved up after six-month absence.

Low-mileage 4yo who was able to dictate from the front before holding on well to score at Kempton (2m) in February; nudged up only 1lb for that and remains unexposed over this trip; cheekpieces added today.

Form & Verdict

0-5 on the Flat but is three-time hurdle winner; didn't run badly when midfield in valuable 1m6f handicap here on Good Friday (refitted cheekpieces) and has possibilities if combination of longer trip and first-time visor has positive effect.

Without a win since January 2022 and unraced beyond about 1m6f; not beaten that far on any of his four appearances this year (1m4f-1m6f) and continues to slip down the weights but others have more appealing profiles.

Seems to have retained some ability since returning from a mammoth absence last September, staying on steadily in his recent races; now 10lb below his last winning mark and 1-1 in Class 6 handicaps; worth a second look.

A maiden after 16 starts but ran big race in defeat behind Man Of Riddles over C&D in January, and last month's second to Zivaniya at Kempton was also a good effort; can make her presence felt again.

Very useful dual-purpose horse in his prime; proved he retains ability when placed at big odds at Wolverhampton (9.4f) in December but struggled on consecutive outings at Southwell last month (2m/1m6f); too risky.
