Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) (2) Class 2

  • Distance: 3m 1f
  • Age: 5yo
  • Runners: 7
  • Prize: £30,000

Smart but clumsy chaser who wasn't at the same level when returned to hurdles at the start of 2021. Ran no sort of race back over fences on his return and has a fair bit to prove back hurdling.

Second in Stayers' at 2021 Cheltenham Festival and also twice a winner of final of this series at that meeting. Pulled up at Leopardstown over Christmas. Cheltenham likely the main aim again.

Very useful over hurdles and fences, including a win in last year's Troytown. Creditable fourth of 23 at Navan last month and trainer has a good strike-rate with his British runners.

Looked a stayer on the up when taking Rendlesham at Haydock last February. Not at that level twice since, although he may have needed the run in Ascot Grade 1 on return and this easier.

Back on the up when second in EBF Final at Sandown last March and stepped up on even that form when runner-up in competitive 3m Haydock handicap in November. Fancied to go well again.
