Form & Verdict
Not far away in two bumpers; hasn't been as dangerous over hurdles but it wasn't a bad novice he ran in last time at Taunton and handicaps are now the way to go; first run beyond 2m3f and sire is a stamina influence.

Mark looked about right ahead of last month's Uttoxeter handicap debut (good to soft), from which the most immediate conclusion to draw was that 2m7f is too far at this stage; remains of interest dropped 1lb and 3f.
