Form & Verdict
Looked badly out of sorts in handicap hurdles for Oliver Sherwood last season (three runs) but kept on well to cause 28-1 surprise on recent seasonal/chase debut here (2m4f, good to soft); not certain to benefit from today's drop back in trip but doesn't look harshly treated by a 5lb rise.

Won slow-ground chase in France last autumn (2m1f) but yet to be placed after six British starts, the most recent when fifth of eight on return to chasing at Taunton (2m7f, good) a fortnight ago; some positives can be drawn from that run, though, and today's trip-and-ground combination may show him in a better light.

Unexposed 6yo who won an Irish point just over a year ago (good to yielding) and was placed in two maiden hurdles in the spring (2m5f/2m, good); ran poorly on recent seasonal/chase debut and is not yet proven on slow ground but it would be reckless to write him off at this stage.

Bought for £100,000 after winning an Irish point; signed off over hurdles with an improved front-running second in a 2m maiden on good ground at Uttoxeter and it's only natural to expect better again from him over fences, especially over this longer distance; interesting.
