Winner in a point-to-point contest in April before running well in defeat in an Aintree 2m1f bumper in May. Found others with better turn of foot when fourth on hurdles bow at Wetherby but this longer trip ought to suit; respected.
129-rated winning chaser having his first ever run over hurdles here. Trip and ground conditions will suit well so interesting contender and the market may reveal expectations today.
Winning point-to-pointer (3m) ran well enough over a surely inadequate 2m last month when sixth beaten just over 8L in a Ffos Las bumper. Longer trip and obstacles should help today so not ruled out.
Son of Sagamix was 3-3 in point-to-points last winter. Trip and ground conditions today should suit well and he has a fine hurdling pedigree so has to be taken seriously; market can guide to a degree.
