Very nearly became a rare winning 6yo of the big hunter chase at Cheltenham last season, in which again he went agonisingly close last month with cheekpieces back on (as effective without them); not for the first time, he raced lazily mid-race but was strong when it mattered; could easily win this if bucking up his ideas, with the long run-in very favourable; 8-1 when falling at Becher's in this last year; handles testing conditions.

In first-time cheekpieces he stayed on better than anything to push Premier Magic close in this 12 months ago when bidding to become the first successful 6yo since Kingscliff in 2003; has won all his subsequent completed hunter chases, in the last two staying on to nab Ferns Lock at Down Royal (3m, soft) and then repelling a fast-finishing Billaway at Naas (3m1f, heavy); deserves considerable credit last time for holding on after getting competitive a long way out; purchased since by JP McManus; gives the impression of racing lazily at times and the return of cheekpieces (absent last four starts) is probably a good thing.
