Form & Verdict
Point winner who has failed to fulfil that promise under rules, including early this year in his first two handicap hurdles; however, connections waste little time in sending him chasing and he could be a different proposition now over fences; interesting to see how he goes in the betting.

3-6 since switched to fences this season, the latest win gained in three-runner contest at Leicester (2m, soft) last month; that form was franked by the runner-up soon afterwards and this progressive 7yo should be fine on today's faster ground; respected.

J: Tom Scudamore

Lightly raced 6yo who showed promise over hurdles (including on soft) and was a good second off this mark on his chase debut at Ffos Las (2m, good) in October; has the ability to play a leading role but he was beaten when falling three out over fences at Plumpton in November, and it's disconcerting that he was reluctant to line up.

Lightly raced; first run over fences and following wind surgery when a front-running second at Ffos Las (beaten just under a length; 2m, good); the winner did nothing for the form next time (probably too bad to be true) and he's gone up 4lb, but it's something he can build on; an easy lead not out of the question, either.
