Useful hurdler who finally got off mark over fences at Doncaster last term. Good second on return. Well held next time but going with plenty of zest when fell latest. First hurdle run since 2017.

£200,000 purchase after dotting up in bumper for Micky Hammond in March 2019. Bettered hurdles debut effort when fourth on return in 19.5f Lingfield novice and likely improver now handicapping.

Improved when second on 21.5f Newton Abbot handicap debut in October and has the obvious potential for better as a lightly raced sort. Drop back in trip not certain to help. though.

Better for bumper run and off mark over hurdles in good style at Exeter (18.5f, heavy) last February. Off 9 months, shaped as if better for run when on Lingfield return in November. Unexposed.

Some promise on first of 2 runs in bumpers and again when reaching the frame in pair of 19f Fontwell novice hurdles in October. Yard in good form since and interesting now handicapping in tongue tie.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Perhaps best to focus on the unexposed sorts here. KALA NOIRE gets the nod with the Sam Thomas team having been in good form since this one was last seen in the autumn. Crypto and Big Bresil are others who could have more to offer now handicapping. The drop in trip isn't certain to benefit Emphatic Qualm but he's still respected along with Flight Deck, who reverts to hurdles after a chase fall.

Betting Forecast

3/1 Flight Deck (Ire), 18/1 Mr Mcgo (Ire), 11/2 Crypto (Ire), 5/1 Emphatic Qualm (Ire), 8/1 Big Bresil, 7/1 Kala Noire (Ire), 25/1 Howling Milan (Ire), 40/1 Some Can Dance (Ire)
