Regular here and has two C&D wins to his name; had company for the lead here in May but jumped well and beat all bar an improver; record when fresh isn't the best, but much respected otherwise; has no obvious ground preferences.

Both wins came back-to-back over Hexham's 3m during March last year; has shown he has little margin for error off current mark even at his favourite venue; can run well again but looks vulnerable.

Dillan Hurst aboard for last seven runs; decisive wins over 3m1f at Cartmel (good) and 3m at Perth (good to soft; beating Doldrum Bay) before coming up short back at Cartmel a month ago, perhaps due to his career-high mark; similar concerns here.

He's now 3lb lower than when winning at Hexham (2m4f, soft) last October and he was a fair fourth there (2m4f, soft) last Tuesday; however, he needs something extra if he's to return to winning ways today.

Modest maiden hurdler, including a heavy defeat on his handicap debut when tried in a tongue-tie (retained); has a lot to prove but he's bred to make a chaser and has undergone some wind surgery.
