Won on his bumper debut and then ran well enough in the Festival bumper which has proved a rich source of novice hurdle winners. This one became another one when building on an encouraging hurdles debut to win easily at Hexham last time.
Plenty of experience in Irish point-to-points (2-7) before winning over C&D on his 2nd hurdles start; made all; won 17L. Stepped up to Grade 2 level last time; found wanting (ground softer than previously tried); cheekpieces now tried back in grade.
His dual winning bumper form has shown him to be a useful performer and he built on a promising hurdles debut to run out an easy winner at Wetherby. Looks as though he will enjoy this even sterner test; has potential and the best form on offer.
Little went right for him on his hurdles debut but he shown that run to be all wrong to a certain extent on his hurdles debut. Certainly offered something to work at Warwick (not knocked around); faces a stiff task here though, one for the long-term.
Beaten 115L on his only Rules run so far (his debut bumper) with his point-to-point form since proving equally poor (pulled up first four runs in that sphere). Looks way out of his depth returning to Rules action over hurdles.
Finished runner-up on only competed Irish point-to-point start she made an encouraging bumper debut at the end of 2017. Last seen a year later when given her hurdles introduction (considerately handled); this looks too hot to handle for now.
