Consistent novice who has taken his form up another notch since stepping up to this trip and impressive when turning previous running around with Doubly Clever at Uttoxeter so clearly respected despite double penalty.
Off the mark on second run when winning at Uttoxeter in June. Probably ran to the same level when runner up at Market Rasen but could have improvement to come for his top yard.
Won over C&D on debut for this yard in the summer but has failed to build on that and dropped out alarmingly at Fontwell last time so something to prove now.
Runner up three times in a row last winter but showed the benefit of a wind operation to get off the mark on soft ground when last seen at Southwell in March and if ready to go after a break, should make his presence felt.
Shaped well when third at Chepstow over Christmas but was below that form when very weak in market on subsequent run. Capable of better and betting may guide.
No sign of ability in Pint-to-points and novice hurdles and impossible to make any positive case for against these rivals.
Several placed efforts since Ffos Las win in the spring though disappointing when turned over at 2/5 last time and although she comes out best on official ratings at revised weights, could be flattered by that rating.
Similar level of ability in both runs in bumpers but was keen on the latest of them and will need to settle better now going hurdling at a longer trip.
Tailed off at huge prices in pair of soft ground Sandown novice hurdles over 2m and can't be fancied on evidence of those runs.
