Trainer - Iain Jardine
Surprised all when beating Samcro by a length-and-a-half in the Grade 2 WKD Hurdle almost a month ago. Form has also been boosted with the third-placed Sharjah beating stablemate Faugheen in the Morgiana recently.
The 5yo switched back to hurdles in the Autumn where his best form has been shown, having disappointed on the flat for such a long time.
Many expect Samcro to reverse the form with him, but has come on so leaps and bounds recently, and cannot be ruled out so easily.
