Yet to add to his good-ground maiden win two years ago but ran big race when third at Market Rasen (2m7f, heavy) in March; still unexposed over staying trips and is back on a sound surface today; shortlisted.

Creditable second on his seasonal/stable debut at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) in December but he failed to build on that at Huntingdon (eighth of 15) the following month; still relatively lightly raced but he has a bit to prove again after that last run and this is a new trip.

Dual hurdle winner on good ground; placed on both starts last summer (2m7f/2m4f) and returned from break with another good effort last month; could still have untapped potential over this sort of trip and can make his presence felt again.

2-13 over hurdles; looked the most likely winner for a long way at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) last month, only to succumb to a tenacious rival on the run-in; 2lb rise ought to be manageable and he can cope with some rain; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to outstanding hurdler Constitution Hill; won on bumper debut last spring and was placed twice over hurdles in the autumn (2m1f/2m3f); not at best on latest outing and not yet tested on ground quicker than good to soft but is hiked up in trip for this handicap debut and has plenty of scope for improvement.

A half-brother to Constitution Hill no less and he made a winning bumper start before shaping well when placed in novice hurdles at Carlisle (2m1f) and Lingfield (2m3f) last autumn; off 124 days but he has more to offer now his stamina is drawn out more so needs considering.

Form & Verdict

Placed twice in novice company at Hereford (2m5f/2m3f) for new stable this year; slightly disappointing when only fifth of sixth on handicap debut there (2m3f, good to soft) last month, though, and probably needs this longer trip to unlock improvement.

Successful four times, including over C&D, as a novice chaser in the 2020-21 campaign; patchy record since but ran respectably (fifth off 10lb higher) in this race last year and looks interesting back here; attractively weighted.

All four wins came in the first half of 2021; has struggled off higher marks since and, while the handicapper has given him some respite, he has to prove that he still possesses the ability to take advantage.

Very well suited by this C&D and good ground but returned from break with a disappointing effort (albeit without usual cheekpieces) three weeks ago and, even if back on song, probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

Not at his best last time at Warwick (3m1f) but was having a very solid season up until then, albeit at about 3m+; this drop in distance is a big enough concern to look elsewhere.
