Form & Verdict
Had shown promise in bumpers and over hurdles before making successful handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good), where he was ridden confidently but only scraped home in the end; just 3lb higher and may improve with Thomasina Eyston (2-3 for yard this season) claiming 10lb.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

Unbeaten in two handicaps, both at 2m4f; scrambled home at Uttoxeter in the first but different story in a conditional jockeys' event here last week, storming clear by 15l (under 10lb claimer); no penalty for that and hard to beat, assuming he stays this trip.

Form & Verdict
Winner of his only completion in Irish points; made good start to hurdle career when third at Uttoxeter in January but he disappointed next time and bled from the nose on final start for Olly Murphy in March (same owners); worth a market check now handicapping for new trainer.

Gained clearcut success at Southwell (2m4f, good) in May (first run after second wind op) and also ran well when fourth at Worcester (2m4f, good) this month; effective on slower ground and recent 2lb drop helps but, after 18 hurdle starts, he's the most exposed runner in this field.
