He’s a half-brother to Billaway so is bred to be a useful sort in this sphere and should come on for that run at Stratford back in June.

The step-up in trip looks to suit based on his breeding and he’s taken to obtain a local success here.

The form of Nigel Twiston-Davies’s charge’s effort at Worcester earlier this month was given a boost when the horse who denied him by a neck won a hurdle contest with ease on his subsequent outing.

Getting plenty of weight from market rival Ted’s Friend, as well as having race fitness on his side, gives him the edge here.
