Form & Verdict
Following a spell on the Flat he reverted to hurdles with an easy handicap win at Hexham (2m7f, good to soft) last month; failed to settle when below par at Aintree (3m, good to soft) last time and it's likely he'll be playing for second if Mofasa is at his best.

Form & Verdict
Kept on for promising third at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft) on second bumper start and made all at Carlisle (2m1f, good) next time; reappeared with fair fourth on recent hurdle debut at Wetherby (2m3f, good) and, although he has lots to find with Mofasa, he's open to improvement now up in trip.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 134

Form & Verdict
Won on his hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) and followed up at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) later in October; carries a double penalty here but holds standout form claims and should be fine at this trip.
