Fourth in a bumper in October 2022 (2m1f, good); not shown a great deal over hurdles and well beaten after a break at Musselburgh when last seen out in December (tongue-tie on for first time); probably best watched on return from another break.

2m4f Fakenham maiden hurdle winner last autumn, who is 0-7 on Flat but placed on AW (1m6f/2m) in two of his last three outings; makes only his second Flat turf appearance but those recent runs give him a place squeak.

Form & Verdict

Showed improved form on handicap debut when seventh at Sedgefield last time (2m1f, good; hampered), when wearing a hood, first-time tongue-tie and first-time cheekpieces; runs with just a tongue-tie this time; needs another step forward; stamina to prove (can be keen).

Well beaten after racing too freely in three slow-ground novice/maiden hurdles (2m3f-2m4f) for new stable in January/February but showed promise in good-ground bumpers for Mick Appleby in 2022, and looks very interesting now back on a sound surface and dropped back in trip for handicap debut; hooded for last two runs; tongue-tie and cheekpieces added today.

Generally very disappointing in recent years but stayed on well to open hurdling account off lowly mark at Fakenham (2m7f, good) five weeks ago, and a 4lb rise is manageable if he's turned over a new leaf.

1-13 in handicaps, the win at Perth (2m4f, heavy) last September, but usually gives his running and looks effective from 2m4f to 3m; usually claimer ridden; possibly ideally suited by ground softer than good but should not be far away if the first-time headgear does not have adverse effect.

Reverted to rules at Sedgefield (2m1f) on Boxing Day and didn't run badly in fifth in that maiden hurdle; won two British point-to-points (2m4f/3m) in the first part of last year and he could be an improver now going back up in trip on his chase and handicap debut; interesting.
