Form & Verdict
Came good over hurdles at fifth attempt, with game win in 15-runner handicap at Exeter (2m, good to firm; front pair clear) in October; very disappointing favourite when upped to 2m3f there a few days later and not seen again since but probably still has potential.

Tongue tied for both hurdle wins, most recently at Stratford (2m2f, good) in June off 5lb lower; well beaten since from out of the weights in Jersey; good chance he can bounce back but others appeal more.

0-19 and he was disappointing at Ludlow when last seen in February; in fairness, that was on soft ground and his record on good or firmer is more positive, so it's not out of the question that he'll bounce back.

Just 1-17 over hurdles but his win came off this mark at Leicester and he had a narrow lead when falling at the last at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in his final run last spring; returns after 13 months off but yard is in decent form and he needs watching in market.
