Never far from the lead when an admirable runner-up to the now-absent Famous Clermont in this 12 months ago (good to soft) and, like last year, he returns on the back of a comfortable hunter chase success (on heavy); teenagers have won this in the past (as recently as 2013) and this veteran needs shortlisting on testing ground he could handle better than most.

Had a fine spell in early 2023, culminating in his second in the 2m5f Foxhunters' at Aintree; hasn't been in the same form this winter, even allowing for a close third of six finishers at Taunton (2m5f, soft) in January, and he did miss a heavy-ground engagement in December.

Won two hunter chases early last year (2m5f/3m) before fine second in the Foxhunters' at Aintree; returned to form when third in hunter chase at Taunton (2m5f, soft) last month and he's a leading contender today.
