  • Age: 5yo

Off the mark in this sphere at Ayr in March and bettered that form when second upped to 3m at Perth a fortnight ago. Another bold show is on the cards.

Opened chase account when proving a neck too strong for King of Fashion (1 lb pull) at Ayr in March. Still bang there when unseating 2 out over this C&D next time, but more needed off revised mark.

Fair sort over hurdles for Gordon Elliott in Ireland and best effort yet over fences on third start for this yard when fourth of 12 at Musselburgh (23.8f, soft) last time. More needed here.

Irish point winner and dual-hurdles winner for Oliver Sherwood. Just about best effort for current yard when second of 5 over C&D on latest start in November, but looks vulnerable all the same.

Fairly useful winning hurdler and stepped up on previous chase form when second at Carlisle in November. However, he has failed to build on that since and others make more appeal.
