Finished last on recent Flat outing but had previously made the frame in four consecutive 3m handicaps here; may benefit from dropping back to 2m4f but career record stands at 0-23, which sounds a warning.

Ability in novices and shaped quite well on handicap debut in July (2m), keeping on late to finish fourth; open to improvement and going back to to this trip could bring it out; not dismissed in a hurry.

Runner-up in the last three of his four handicaps, most recently behind a next-time-out winner in 13-runner race at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) four weeks ago; nudged up 2lb for that but will be dangerous if the first-time cheekpieces have any sort of positive effect.

Form & Verdict
Placed in Ireland but tailed off on first two starts for this stable; not beaten too far on handicap debut at Uttoxeter in July (held up, never able to land a blow), which offers hope; friendless (50-1) in the betting there and worth noting if there's more interest this time.

Promise in a bumper at this meeting 12 months ago; unplaced in five hurdle runs but latest effort at Perth ten weeks ago was promising, looking to be going nowhere when making a mistake two out but running on very strongly from the last (2m4f, soft); has untapped potential now up in distance.
