Failed to progress last season after winning a novice hurdle but showed improved form in first-time cheekpieces (retained) when easily winning at Leicester (2m6f, heavy) last month in his second chase; he's 8lb higher today in what looks a tougher race but he could have more to offer over fences.

Became rather disappointing after last season's novice hurdle win and was just a modest third on last month's chasing debut at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft); will appreciate today's ease in grade but probably still needs help from the added cheekpieces; effective on soft ground; unraced on heavy.
