Failed to progress over hurdles and has been beaten more than 20l in two runs since returning from a year on the sidelines, including chase debut last month when he made one notable mistake; after only eight runs he retains some potential.

J: Conor Ring

T: Evan Williams

Ex-Irish maiden who didn't progress over hurdles and was a well-held fifth when second-favourite at Catterick (1m7f maiden) on comeback in February; still lightly raced and this is only his second handicap but he needs improvement on this switch to fences.

Two good runs and two bad ones over hurdles, the latest on handicap debut 12 months ago; a repeat of his previous fourth in a Chepstow maiden (2m3f, soft) would put him right in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Struggled to get competitive over fences last season and pulled up the last twice, but his reduced mark appeals on his best hurdle form and he's undergone wind surgery; could quite easily stage a revival.

Form & Verdict

Won two of his three points last year and was only 13-2 for his return to rules in a handicap hurdle at Ffos Las (3m) where he got worked up in the preliminaries (beaten 16l); the hood might settle him down and he's worth a second look on chase debut.

Good to see him at least get round last time but he was still beneath his best in finishing a 10l third of four finishers at Wincanton (1m7f, good); others appeal more.
