Couple of decent efforts over hurdles in recent months most notably when third at Market Rasen (good) on his penultimate start. Notable runner on first Flat start in over 12 months.
Wore cheekpieces (retained) for the first time when finishing sixth in a 1m2f handicap at Newbury (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Stamina to prove stepping up in distance.
Good sixth in a 1m4f handicap at Wolverhampton last October. Disappointing since including on sole Flat start. Market support would be notable on stable debut.
Winning for the sixth time when scoring over 1m4f on good-to-firm ground at Chepstow last time out. Raised 4lb for that victory and is worth another try at this distance.
Placed on two of his last three starts including when ¾L second on firm ground over 1m5f here last time out. Of interest stepping up in distance.
Saw off Filament Of Gold when winning by ¾L in a firm ground 1m5f event here earlier this month. Extra furlong no issue and a leading player despite a 3lb rise in the weights.
13 race maiden finished third over this trip at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) two months ago. Fair fourth behind a couple of these rivals over 1m5f here on his only subsequent start. Visor tried for the first time.
Shaped as if a step back up in trip would suit when a running on fourth over an extended 1m3f on firm ground here last time out. More needed however racing from out of the handicap.
