Pretty useful hurdler for all he failed to add to his novice win in handicaps last season. Hasn't always looked straightforward and has changed hands for £20,000 but he is built for chasing.

He has won a hurdle race and two NH flat races from 1m 6f to 2m 3f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft. Well beaten at 10-1 when 10th of 13 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Cheltenham over 3m (good) in April. Having his first run for a new stable today.

At The Races Verdict

Dans Le Vent makes his chasing debut now trained by Evan Williams and is worth a precautionary market check, while fellow course winner New Agenda is another to be interested in back under Rules. There was much to like about BYRON FLYER's victorious debut over fences at Worcester four weeks ago, though, and he has been found a nice chance to follow up. The eight-year-old shaped like a natural on that occasion and should have more to offer.

Timeform Verdict

BYRON FLYER isn't an obvious one to excel over fences given his Flat background, but he took very well to it when an easy winner at Worcester last month and is taken to follow up switched to a handicap. The return to fences will suit Pink Eyed Pedro and he's feared most.
