A useful 1m2f Flat winner in Germany and already a dual 2m hurdles winner at Taunton and Musselburgh this season; beat only one when fifth in Kempton Grade 2 last time but no surprise to see him bounce back in these calmer waters.

A useful 1m2f Flat winner in Germany (on good and good to soft) who has had a fine first season over hurdles, and in the last of his three novice wins he beat Dartmoor Pirate who was close up in Sandown's EBF Final the time before; it's all come at a cost mark-wise but there could be even more in the locker under drying conditions.

Form & Verdict

Made a winning start over hurdles at Wincanton (1m7f) in December and he took his form up a level when an excellent fourth of 17 in 2m4f Sandown handicap last month; that form has been franked so he's a player back in novice company.

Point winner who scored at 28-1 on his rules debut at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) in January and he built on that when a close third of five in a Sandown novice (2m, soft) last month; needs to find more in this competitive race but he has plenty of stamina in his pedigree and this step back up in trip looks a good move; dangerous.

Showed fair form when a debut third in a bumper here in November but he's failed to threaten in his two runs over hurdles, coming in a never-dangerous fourth of six in 2m4f novice here last time; he's the sort to do better in due course.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who, after a wind op, stepped up markedly on his hurdling debut when easily landing 1m7f Wincanton novice 20 days ago in a first-time tongue-tie (retained); this son of Flemensfirth looks to have more to offer so merits serious consideration.
