Form & Verdict
Bumper/maiden hurdle winner who can win on the Flat too judged on his promising seconds over 1m2f on turf at Pontefract and Doncaster in recent weeks; this sharper test at the trip is possibly not ideal (he will be suited by 1m4f in this sphere) but he should still play a prominent role.

Upped to 1m4f on last two starts with cheekpieces enlisted, when leading close home on handicap debut at Pontefract (good to soft) in September and asserting in final style late on at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) last month; this slightly shorter trip is a small concern and he's been raised another 7lb, but he very much looks the type to make further improvement.
