Form & Verdict
Promising novice hurdler last season (two wins) and scored by 4l on seasonal/chase debut at Kempton (2m2f, good) this month; raised 6lb for that and competes from 2lb out of weights here but has plenty of scope for further progress and is another to consider.

Improving novice hurdler last season until struggling in a Grade 2 and then probably failing to give his true running in a Newbury handicap the final time; pointing background and peak RPRs suggest he might be on a decent mark for his chasing debut.

Form & Verdict
Four-time hurdle winner in early part of this year, including Grade 2 novice at Kempton (2m, good to soft) and Sussex Champion at Plumpton (2m, good); jumped well in the main and seemed to have a bit left in the tank when odds-on winner of Uttoxeter novice chase (2m, good to soft) last month; today's race is more competitive but he's a good prospect.

Progressive form over hurdles last season included a Grade 2 success and he got the job done when odds-on for his chase debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft), albeit narrowly from one who ran moderately last week at Cheltenham; inferior to Pentland Hills over hurdles but has shown he can jump fences.

Progressive form over hurdles last season included a Grade 2 success and he got the job done when odds-on for his chase debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft), albeit narrowly at the expense of Jetoile; given his hurdling ability, he should be capable of finding plenty on that form.

A slight concern that all his wins have come in bigger fields but he was a class act over hurdles when on his game, winning two valuable handicaps and holding his own in the Grade 1 Christmas Hurdle last season; on a high mark for chasing debut but one that's not beyond him.
