Made somewhat shaky start to hurdling career last season but got his act together with emphatic maiden win at Wincanton (1m7f, good; first-time tongue-tie) in April; could easily have more to offer in handicaps this term but may not be ideally suited by the forecast soft ground here.

Prominent racer with a course win to his name and he was good value for his narrow winning margin under Elizabeth Gale last time at Fakenham (2m, good; 5lb lower); prior to that he was only placed in a couple of handicaps won by today's rivals and he might be vulnerable in this strong a handicap.
