Form & Verdict
Showed promise in Irish bumpers; also third in a pair of maiden hurdles over 2m4f and 2m for Declan Wall in home country last autumn; absent since but has joined a very good stable and is likely to be a major player on handicap debut, particularly if the betting vibes are strong.

J: Mr P W Mullins

First run for more than a year and making handicap/stable debut when justifying heavy support in fine style at Doncaster (2m, good) on Saturday; this is more competitive but good chance he will be up to defying his penalty.

Made it four wins in eight starts when seeing off six rivals at Southwell (2m, good to firm) under Alan Doyle in September; creditable fourth at Wetherby since, despite a few indifferent jumps in the home straight; likely to be on the premises.

Form & Verdict
Four wins (two hurdles, two chases) this season; his run of good form came to a halt in a smart handicap chase at Cheltenham last month but his stable has enjoyed a purple patch lately so every chance he'll bounce straight back now returned to hurdles (is well treated on chase form).
