Useful triple winner on the Flat for William Jarvis, with his latest success over 1m2f in Sandown (RPR 99) last July; interesting recruit to hurdling for new yard and he needs a close look back from 125 days off; all of his wins have come on good to firm; also entered in 1:25 at Huntingdon.

Four-time Flat winner (1m2f/1m4f) whose hurdle debut fourth at Newcastle (2m1f, soft) wasn't without promise; improvement required but the step up in trip may be a plus (stayed 2m on the Flat); not ruled out each-way.

Justified favouritism in Ascot bumper (1m7f, soft) on debut in October 2021; placed since in a bumper at Lingfield (AW) last January and in a 1m4f maiden on the Flat in Germany in April; has since changed hands and left German trainer Andreas Wohler; interesting hurdles newcomer.

Good bumper form, including a win here, and he ran well on hurdling debut at Ascot in October (split two subsequent winners in finishing third); yet to race on genuinely soft ground but viable contender if handling it.

Verdict

Having finished a solid second on both starts, UNCLE BERT looks capable of going one better. Rambo T (second choice) and Roccovango are the chief threats on hurdles form.[Steve Boow]
