Won two in a row last April (2m3f/2m4f, good) and first run since when pulled up at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in February; returned to form on the Flat 17 days ago and he could play a leading role now back over hurdles for his in-form stable; won on soft early in his career.

Better known as a hurdler, but did well over 2m on the Newcastle Tapeta late in 2020 including a win off 5lb lower; pulled up over hurdles on his return from ten months off four weeks ago and although he may have needed it, he will need to bounce back quickly.

In good form in final four starts last season, winning twice and finishing second twice; off since last April but still feasibly treated, conditions suit and has a chance if fully wound up.
