Looked useful when winning an Ascot maiden hurdle (2m3½f, good) last November. Going well when crashing out at Newbury next time and pulled too hard when last seen back at Ascot in January. Half-brother to two 2m chase winners. Interesting.
Won the Grade 2 Dovecote over hurdles at Kempton (2m, good) in February, after which his top trainer suggested he would make a good novice chaser this season. Sure to be well prepared and has plenty of scope for improvement.
Won big field Pertemps qualifier (3m) over hurdles at Cheltenham this time last year, off a mark of 135. Kept Grade 2/Grade 1 company thereafter, without further success. Highest BHA rating in this field, though trip short enough on chase debut.
Multiple hurdles winner at up to 2m5½f, on good or slower. Blundered badly and pulled up when 9-4 on sole chase start at Ffos Las in June. Ran well in one of three Flat starts since. Interesting if she jumps round.
