Doubled hurdling tally with 2m3f course win in November (soft ground) and bettered that performance when close third over an extended 3m here (good) later that month; good claims if judged on that evidence but his next two runs were lacklustre (hurdle/chase) and he now has a point to prove.

Form & Verdict
Bought for £28,000 after finishing third in a Kelso bumper; both his runs over hurdles for new yard were 2m in the mud, coming second of 11 to an impressive winner in maiden at Worcester four weeks ago; came from off the pace that day and has to be of interest upped in trip for handicap debut.
