Enthusiastic front-runner, promising debut at Wincanton over timber and solid third over C&D since behind fair sorts. Can go well again now.
Landed Southwell maiden hurdle on debut for current yard in July but hasn't really backed that up since; though latest Uttoxeter third (2m, soft; 14-1) was more encouraging.
1-11 over hurdles, having scored at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft) in June; tailed off on reappearance at Wetherby (2m5½f, good to soft; 33-1) this month and watching brief safest on that evidence
A 2m Flat winner in France, he went close last month at Wetherby (2m, good to soft; 12-1) on second hurdles run for David Pipe. Since fallen when in a battle at Wincanton.
Had wind surgery prior to seasonal return/handicap bow over C&D (good; 12-1) last month but was unable to rise a challenge having been ridden in rear and beaten just under 12L in seventh of nine.
Modest mare with 1-33 record on the Flat and 0-12 over timber so far; she was a 20L runner-up at Southwell in a Mares' Handicap Hurdle on Friday and will need plenty more to go a place better.
