Still a maiden after 20 starts but he ran well when a 2l third at Exeter (2m7f, heavy) last month; seems fairly versatile ground-wise and has each-way claims again off same mark as last time.

Went close on handicap debut at Doncaster (3m, good) in February 2023 but he's not repeated the form since and was a remote fourth of six at Chepstow (2m7f maiden) last month; record now stands at 0-10 and he needs a major revival back in a handicap.

Four-time hurdle winner and last three wins have been on good ground; has generally struggled since his last success 14 months ago but he's on a reduced mark and this return to forecast quicker ground is a positive; yard won this in 2021 and 2022 and it wouldn't be a surprise if he got back on track with a good run.
