Form & Verdict

Last season didn't really go to plan and was tried in different types of headgear; added a fifth hurdles win when back to form under Charlie Maggs at Ludlow (2m; second has won since) this month; back up 3lb but still well treated so has to be respected if in the same form here.

Won a Class 2 handicap off 11lb higher under Charlie Maggs at Musselburgh 14 months ago so the ability is there; however, last season didn't really get off the ground and he tried two different types of headgear.

Won four in a row for Alan King early in 2022 but was 0-7 for another yard last year; has rejoined Alan King since and an encouraging effort at Newbury in March was bettered by a Stratford win (2m, good to soft) the following month; remains well treated back up 2lb.

Soundly beaten in hot Sandown handicap three starts ago but respectable efforts back at a more suitable level the last twice, including in cheekpieces at Hexham (2m, good to soft) latest; reliable and versatile 5yo who should give another good account.

Soundly beaten in hot Sandown handicap two starts ago but quickly got back on track with very respectable third off today's mark at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) last month; drops back in trip with first-time cheekpieces fitted here, and is not yet fully exposed.

Winning hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m4f) in November but he hasn't progressed and was pulled up in a Market Rasen chase before finishing well beaten on return to hurdles; plenty to prove with cheekpieces added.

Only 1-6 in points; won his first two hurdle races (after wind surgery) but those were minor novices at Sedgefield (soft) and, at odds of 18-1, he was tailed off in a handicap at Ayr; that latest run was too bad to be true but he has a lot to prove at this level.

Beaten long way at Chepstow in October before falling over fences in November; again suffered a heavy defeat in a good-ground handicap at Cheltenham (2m1f) last month but stopped the rot when third at Southwell (2m, good) this month; on a good mark and respected.

Fairly useful Flat performer who came good over hurdles at the second attempt, in a Catterick maiden (2m3f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in December; not in same form since and unseated early on handicap hurdle debut over C&D this month; remains with a point to prove.
