Won a Hereford bumper on debut in November (2m, good); good third in a strong Warwick maiden on hurdles debut (2m3f, soft); should improve but this marked step up in trip is not sure to be ideal.

Looked in a bit of bother turning for home at Hereford (good) in November but stayed on best to win; second of three in another bumper at Southwell (good to soft) may have been better form but, making his hurdle debut, he needs marked improvement to upstage the best of today's rivals.

Form & Verdict
Pulled up over fences last time when tried in a visor; has shown plenty of promise over hurdles, including when third in a Kelso handicap two runs back (3m2f, soft); thorough stayer who will be suited by the conditions; cheekpieces back on; each-way chance.

Lightly raced; well-beaten third on his chase debut at Kelso last month (2m7f) but then stayed on well for the same placing on his return there over hurdles (both runs in cheekpieces); looks a thorough stayer who might be helped by the new visor, but lack of chasing experience is a concern.

Easy Irish maiden point win in April; fell three out on rules debut but much better when he returned to Wetherby (2m3f, soft) at 28-1 three weeks ago, making the early running and weakening on the run-in for third of 15 behind a useful chaser; that's a lot more than most of these have shown.

Failed to settle and had lost his position when falling three out over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago on rules debut; however, that run may have got the freshness out of him and he was an easy winner of an Irish maiden point (3m, yielding) in April; retains potential.
