Form & Verdict
3-10 over hurdles when trained by Paul Nicholls and travelled well for a long way when fourth on last month's seasonal/stable debut at Ayr (3m, good to soft); strong claims if able to build on that performance today.

Ex-Paul Nicholls; easily won a three-runner race at Carlisle (3m1f) in December on second run for new yard and not disgraced on heavy ground next time; to win this, however, would surely exceed all his handicap form.

Form & Verdict
Kept on for fourth over fences here (3m, soft) in October, after a break, and switches back to hurdling on a workable mark but has developed a tendency to race lazily and it's hard to predict the extent to which he'll warm to the task.
