Form & Verdict
Seemingly aided by first-time visor when third of 11 off today's mark on recent handicap hurdle debut at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft); not bred to benefit from today's step up in trip but, if his Flat form is a guide, the forecast good ground could be strongly in his favour; interesting.

T: Robbie Llewellyn

0-12 over hurdles but has finished second on all three starts for Robbie Llewellyn, most recently when losing out only by a neck at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) six weeks ago; today's move back up in trip will suit and it's reasonable to expect another big run.
