14:00 Chepstow Wed 7 November 2018
Winner on his stable/hurdles debut he showed promise after that before getting rather bogged down on heavy going (last two hurdles runs). Given a break he returned over fences (debut) at Stratford and shaped with promise over 2m4f; now tries 3m.
Has an inconsistent profile over fences and now looks far from the force of old and has dropped quickly in the weights. Pulled up when last seen failing to build on a previous respectable run he has something to prove here.
Still a maiden and his latest run gave little encouragement that he was going to better that record soon. Only plugged on late over slightly further here last time and always likely to find one or two too good.
Has his fair share of attitude and temperament (can run in snatches) and looked very hard work on his most recent outing despite finishing second. That was his chase debut and it offered little encouragement for the future.
0-7 over fences but hopefully will have gained some confidence from an all-the-way win at Fakenham over hurdles recently where he won by 26L. Now returns to fences of the same mark and solid claims if he gets his jumping together.
Confirmed the promise that he had shown at Huntingdon on his 2nd chase start when winning at Ludlow off the back of a break. Far from the finished article but only raised 5lb for his victory and more progress likely; track should suit ideally.
Won a handicap chase at Bangor (2m4f) off a 5lb higher mark over a year ago but has failed to follow that up seen and has been disappointing of late. Despite the falling mark others are given a better chance.
Has shown much better form over fences than he did over hurdles and jumped well (positively ridden) when winning at Hereford early in the year. Suited by a stamina test and wasn't disgraced last time out off a 2lb higher mark.
