Made all when a 7L hurdles scorer at Sedgefield (2m5f, good to soft) in January; still learning the ropes over fences (0-3); finished a plugging on third to the Dan Skelton-trained Goodthyneaway at Southwell (2m4f, good) latest; holds every chance.
Difficult to say that he's appeared to be anything other than an ordinary performer over hurdles (admittedly was outclassed at Kempton); has a chasing pedigree so could fare better in this discipline (debut) wearing a newly applied tongue-tie.
Made mistakes when pulled up on debut for this trainer (11-2) behind today's rival Emerald Chieftan at Southwell recently; now 0-18 over fences and hasn't won anywhere since October 2015; easily opposed.
Took full advantage of meeting some moderate opponents when a 15L winner on his penultimate start (2m5f+ Fontwell, soft); disappointing off his revised mark latest, and on balance rates as a difficult horse to predict.
Bangor bumper winner in October 2015; yet to strike in eight starts over obstacles, but is potentially capable of finding a small race over fences (0-3); conditions fine; definitely one to consider with Jamie Moore in the saddle.
11-race rules maiden; has run to a similar level of form on both starts over regulation fences (2m-2m5f); holds minor place prospects in a modest contest, but doesn't necessarily appear to be a winner in waiting.
Poor Flat and hurdles maiden; tailed-off on chasing debut behind the 1/16f Louis' Vac Pouch at Catterick (2m3f novices') in February; this is a more realistic test, albeit she's still totally unappealing.
