Really good form on chase debut but dropped away tamely next time when stepping up to this trip. Has been rested since and returns with stable 3-8 in last two weeks. Bred to stay this far and to be suited by a sound surface.
Would have been the pick of these on his best hurdling performances. Two runs on the comeback trail have not shown he retains that ability nor that he has taken to chasing.
Has won twice since blinkers have been fitted. Suited to forcing tactics and a sound surface and every chance he will show more than he did on chase debut.
Useful staying hurdler who was placed in a point-to-point. Looks dangerous in receipt of her allowance, but would not want the ground to get any faster for chase debut.

Dandy Dan (11/8), Molly Childers (6/4), Lord Topper (4/1), Fair Exchange (13/2), Eshtiaal (8/1)
