Had a fine summer; his second try over fences proving successful landing four novice chases in small fields (favourite each time). Likely to be his last dance before being put away for the winter; stiff task giving weight to some smart ex-hurdlers.
Impressive winner of two high-profile handicap hurdles as a novice (wore hood both times). Strange to see that vital piece of equipment dispensed with when disappointing in the Supreme; has loads of scope to make a chaser; further progress to come.
Work to do with Al Dancer on one piece of hurdles form but did improve after that recording two impressive victories in that discipline. No doubt he's an exciting prospect who handles cut in the ground; interesting connections take him chasing.
The only other one in the field with some chasing experience his debut in this sphere was promising at Uttoxeter, 2m4f, (travelled and jumped well). Inferior over hurdles to the rest of the field he's unlikely to be disgraced.
