Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 8yo who won two of his first three starts for Jonjo O'Neill but has not been seen to best effect in his two starts since; good chance if he reverts to the form shown when winning at Wetherby (2m, soft) at Christmas and the first of his two Irish wins last term was over 3m in the mud, so this step back up in trip should be okay.

Form & Verdict

Lost his form in December 2022 on last two starts for Fergal O'Brien, before 318-day absence; two runs back over hurdles for new yard, with the latest a step back in the right direction and he does have a reduced mark, so a case can be made.

Form & Verdict

Won on last season's hurdling debut at Newbury (2m, good to firm) and has had minor honours in his three starts since, but his soft-ground efforts on last two starts weren't his best form; needs overall improvement for this handicap debut, with headgear first time.
