Lost his unblemished record at this track (112) when beaten 3L by Our Lucas in a 2m Class 4 handicap hurdle in March (soft); switches to fences for the first time with the benefit of a hurdles pipe-opener banked; stable in-form; chance.
Picked up for £16,000 in May 2018 (has had time off the track in the past); game when making a winning chasing debut at Carlisle (2m, soft) last month - odds-on favourite flopped; respected despite facing a stiffer task.
Half-brother to the talented Sa Suffit; out of his depth on chasing debut at Newcastle (2m, soft) 17 days ago, and beaten when hampered and unseated rider three out.
1-6 in PTP's, yet remains a maiden under rules (0-6); likely to prove suited by chasing (in lesser handicaps) given more time; tailed-off on rules fencing bow at Kelso last month (50/1).
Lost a hind shoe when yet again making the frame at Perth in September (2m4f, good); off since and has undergone wind surgery; still early days for Julia Brooke, but his overall rules record (1-34) is off-putting.
Stablemate of Prince Dundee, and a winning pointer (bought for £35,000 in May 2016); low-key over hurdles, but surely the prospect of better to come over fences; interesting to see how he fares.
Stablemate of Lost Frequency and seemingly the second string; half-brother to the 2m-2m4f chase winner Ben Dundee; hasn't achieved much of any note over hurdles, but possibility of improvement now switched to fences (debut).
