J: Harry Cobden

Fair Flat racer who easily won two run-of-the-mill novice hurdles at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) during the summer; seemed to have limitations exposed in good-quality handicap over that C&D last month and has big penalty to shoulder on return to novice company but can still make his presence felt.

Fair Flat racer; unplaced all four hurdling starts in 2020-21 season but returned to this code with two 11l novice wins over C&D (good) this summer; has a lot more on his plate in this good-quality handicap but still needs to be taken very seriously.

Made all in Sandown juvenile hurdle (2m, soft) for Camilla Poulton in December 2022, but was in very poor form when last seen last spring; has tongue-tie fitted for this stable debut; revival needed.

Form & Verdict

Yet to add to his win on British debut in autumn 2022, but ran well from the front when third at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in March and did not enjoy a favourable tactical scenario when ridden very patiently at Fontwell last month; can go well if first-time cheekpieces have positive effect.
