Has been showing potential in all four starts, breaking his duck at the third attempt at Warwick (2m, good) in October. Went well under penalty when stepped up to 2m4½f at Market Rasen (soft) last time and very much of interest on handicap debut.
Yet to get off the mark, but not far away from doing so at Newcastle (2m4½f, soft) in December and then on his handicap debut at Hereford (2m, soft) last time. 7lb rise for that last run looks a little harsh and this will be tougher.
0-17 under both codes, though has made the frame in all three starts over hurdles. Mark looks reasonably fair for handicap debut here and shouldn't mind the ground, but likely to need some improvement.
Shrugged off a moderate start to his hurdling career when scoring at Huntingdon (2m3½f, soft) and then adding an easy 15L win at Kempton (2m5f) from a 7lb higher mark last week. Back for more under a penalty here and 7lb now claimed. Leading player.
Best effort so far was over a similar trip at Chepstow in novices' company in December. Not a bad sighter on handicap debut at Ludlow (3m, soft) last time. Dropped 1lb here and potential for improvement, so not ruled out.
