Shaped with significant promise in all three qualifying runs, most recently when third in Plumpton maiden (2m, good) a year ago; has fitness to prove on this handicap debut but market support will make him of strong interest; tongue-tie fitted.

Six-time winner on the Flat; soundly beaten in three novice/maiden hurdles this season and but was unlucky to come to grief at fourth flight on handicap debut in March and remains very unexposed in this sphere.

Multiple turf Flat and AW winner at up to 1m4f (RPR 67); 0-3 over hurdles, his best effort coming over C&D (good to soft) when last seen (beaten 27l); needs significant improvement on that to defy this initial mark.

Showed no significant promise when a big-priced outsider for four maiden/novice hurdles in the autumn (2m-2m3f) but makes handicap debut from a lowly mark and gets to race on good ground for first time since finishing second in a small-field bumper last spring; worth a market check.

Placed in a Listed bumper on good ground last season; 0-4 over hurdles this term but was very much in contention before inexplicably running out at third-last flight on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) in January; sports first-time cheekpieces today; big player if he stays on the course here.
