Landed Plumpton maiden hurdle in November and ha splaced on each of his last three starts, including over 2m here last time. Stays 2m2f, so extra 2f on this track may be within his compass but has 6lb to concede all round.
Only win in 20 starts came when landing Chelmsford AW 1m2f h'cap for William Jarvis in 2017. Looked ill at ease on hurdling bow at Huntingdon last time when soon tailed off and needs a big step forward to be competitive here.
Landed Goodwood 1m2f maiden in 2017 for Marcus Tregoning Current yard has impressive 32% winning strike rate here, and this gelding has been placed on both hurdle outings to date at Huntingdon and Doncaster. Trip holds no fears and has solid claims.
Yard has 29% win rate at this track over the years. Needed first run for current handler when fading in heavy ground to be fourth at Uttoxeter after near-600 day break, but well beaten at Ludlow latest. Unexposed, but much more needed.
