Placed in both bumpers (2m, good) and another fair performance when a near-17l fourth of ten at Lingfield (2m4f, soft) recently on his second hurdle start; probably needs to improve to win this but can give a good account in a race lacking depth.

Record of 1-14 over hurdles but he's a consistent type who has finished placed in his last five starts; on same mark as when a rallying second at Market Rasen (2m4f) last Tuesday and he's effective on soft/heavy ground; respected on this drop back in grade.

Beaten on last nine runs with a habit of finding one or two too good; however, having been placed in his last four races (2m-2m4f, various), his consistency is an appealing trait against rivals who have something to prove.

Two C&D wins from the front this winter (good/soft) and made an improved winner pull out the stops at Leicester 20 days ago (1m7f, soft); is a solid marker but up 3lb and meets one with considerable potential here.

Didn't progress after promising handicap hurdle debut last May and is now 0-10 in that sphere but posted sound effort when second at Chepstow (2m3f, good) two weeks ago and can cope with today's drop back in trip; tongue-tie fitted for today's chasing debut; not out of this if he jumps soundly.

Maiden who is relatively exposed in handicaps but has run creditably over similar trips to today's on last two starts, at Taunton (good to soft) and Wincanton (good), and less guesswork with him than some.
