Form & Verdict

Made the frame five consecutive times over hurdles before winning Class 5 handicap in good style at Uttoxeter (2m7f, soft) last month; has a bit to find on the figures with a couple of today's rivals but will be fine on the faster ground and has strong each-way claims.

Delivered on earlier hurdling promise when easily justifying short odds in Southwell maiden (2m, heavy) in April; unraced on ground quicker than good to soft but, if he handles today's quicker conditions, has a big role to play.

Close up in a pair of bumpers before posting a fairly useful effort on his hurdling debut at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy); sent off a shade of odds-on to go one better at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) and was pushed along but led narrowly when falling two out; this looks an easier race than that one.
