Showed fair form over hurdles in 2018/19 and left return/chase debut effort in his wake when 1 length second of 6 at Stratford (19.5f) last month. Never convinced with his jumping, however.

Back to winning ways at Cartmel (21f) last July and best effort since when just failing to get up at Taunton (18f) last month. Is an infrequent winner but holds claims with a repeat.

Dual novice hurdle winner last term who looked likeliest winner before falling 2 out at Carlisle (20f) in April. Very much one to consider from same mark if keeping the errors at bay.

Improved again when second in 2m Plumpton handicap on reappearance in November but he's been most underwhelming since, weakening when bad mistake over fences at Stratford (19.5f) in March.

Dual 20f hurdle winner for Dan Skelton in 2018/19. Confined to just 3 starts since, weakening as if amiss returning from 18 months off at Chepstow (23.6f) in April. This should reveal more.

Useful when on-song, particularly over fences, but his latest Newton Abbot display was disappointing, eased off to finish last of 3. Mark continues to ease but losing run is mounting up.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

DO WANNA KNOW's recent form figures don't make for encouraging reading, yet he looked set to get off the mark in this sphere prior to unseating 2 out at Carlisle last month. He gets the nod to put it all together and come out on top operating from the same mark. Demon d'Aunou and Starjac may pose the chief threats.
