Form & Verdict

Launched chasing career with two underwhelming runs this season and now 0-9 overall but was second off today's mark when heavily backed for Southwell handicap hurdle (3m, good) in April and will be feared if well supported again; swaps cheekpieces for first-time blinkers.

Displayed improvement when second to Wotyoudunnow Buddy in 2m seller here last month and has run well twice again over that trip since, latterly when third on handicap debut at Perth (2m, good to firm); has possibilities if this big hike up in trip suits.

Form & Verdict

Point/bumper winner who was placed in two slow-ground hurdles at start of this year (2m3f/2m4f); well beaten when dropped back to 2m for recent handicap debut, though, and it's hard to know what to expect from him over this new trip and with cheekpieces added.

Ex-Irish maiden; kept on for fourth on stable debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in November and may not have handled heavy ground when below that form on his two spring outings (2m1f/2m4f); has a bit to prove (including stamina) but has dropped to a tempting mark.
