Form & Verdict

0-11 overall, including seven defeats over fences; however, he continues to run well in defeat and is closely matched with Shot Boii in their Hereford clash in January (3m1f, good to soft); handicapper still refuses to do him any favours but he should be involved; cheekpieces added.

0-10 (0-6 over fences) but this 6yo has run well on his last three starts, most recently third to No Hubs No Hoobs at Wincanton (3m1f, heavy; beaten about 4l); he's 6lb better off with the winner and could be thereabouts.

Has only won a four-runner novice hurdle; only run of distinction in five starts over fences was his third over 2m4f here on Boxing Day (good to soft); jumped moderately next time over 2m6f and then pulled up over 3m2f when heavy ground shouldn't have bothered him; should be on a good mark but not exactly crying out to be backed.

Sole win (ten races) in a four-runner novice hurdle at Exeter (2m2f) last February; sent chasing this term, easily best of four attempts when third of seven at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft; acts on heavy) on penultimate start; tried 2m6f latest; there's some stamina in the family and he's well treated judged on peak efforts.
