Very progressive 6yo who is 4-4 since fitted with cheekpieces, the latest win gained under Jack Andrews in 19-runner handicap over C&D (good) three weeks ago with two of today's rivals on his heels; unraced on ground slower than good to soft but otherwise his claims are very solid.

Dual hurdle winner at about 2m3f on slow ground; got off the mark over fences at the sixth attempt when scoring over C&D (soft) on his penultimate start; things seemed to happen a bit too quickly for him when dropped to 2m1f (good) at Plumpton latest; not written off.

This trip could be on the short side but it was a likeable display when getting off the mark over fences at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft; fine on drier ground) and, overall, he probably has the least to prove here even off a 7lb higher mark.

0-5 over fences but headgear seems to have helped on last two outings, and the form of last month's Fakenham second (2m5f, soft; first-time blinkers) was well advertised by the winner in a valuable race at the weekend; has cheekpieces refitted today; course winner over hurdles; high on the list.

Showed a good degree of promise when winning an Ascot maiden hurdle (2m4f, soft) last April but has been some way below that level since, albeit suffered an irregular heartbeat on penultimate start; latest effort was, at least, more encouraging; well treated on chase debut if back to his best.

Lightly raced since winning two novice hurdles in late 2022 (2m3f/2m5f) and absent since pulled up on seasonal/chase debut in November (struck into); not an easy mare to weigh up at present but could still have significant potential; goes beyond 2m6f for first time here.
