1m3f Flat winner in blinkers who ran well when second of five on last Sunday's hurdle debut at Exeter (2m, good to soft); sets a good standard for the rest to aim at and he holds solid claims in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict
Failed to progress on the Flat and was well beaten in midfield in the November Handicap (1m4f, heavy) on his stable debut three weeks ago; however, he achieved a useful RPR of 88 when mid-division at Goodwood in July on his final run for Richard Hughes and is entitled to respect on hurdle debut.

Fair form over hurdles last season, running okay when fourth on handicap debut at Musselburgh (2m1f, good to soft) in March; subsequent Flat efforts nothing to get excited about but he arrrives fit for this hurdle reappearance and may have more to give in this sphere.

Three Flat wins since July (1m2f-1m4f, including on good to soft) and he posted an RPR of 77 when scoring at Wolverhampton latest; this progressive sort could play a leading role if taking to hurdles at the first attempt.

Runner-up in seller on the Flat at Redcar (1m, heavy) last month but he's a ten-race maiden and others here were superior in that code; there's also a doubt about his stamina for this game.

Twice down the field on AW towards end of last year but hurdling is more his game and he's on a competitive mark judged on last season's exploits in juvenile races; could have a part to play now back in this sphere.

Sole win was over hurdles last December; vast majority of Flat runs have been over 1m or shorter and well beaten when trying 1m2f here on latest outing but that was after eight months off; now tries 1m4f and although he has a fair bit to prove in this sphere, a case could be argued.

Made it 0-10 on the Flat for the Johnston yard when down the field at Yarmouth last month; sold for 17,000gns six days later and gelded; however, he showed some fair form in middle-distance handicaps (peak RPR 75) and he may make a hurdler; not ruled out on stable debut.

23-race maiden; wasn't beaten far (1.75l) when fourth to today's rival Spirit Of Ash over C&D in November, and meets that mare on improved terms if factoring in the 7lb claim of Tom Kiely-Marshall; latest effort excusable (1m6f), so isn't a forlorn hope from a career-low mark.
