Bits and pieces of his hurdle form (2m3f-3m) would give him an each-way squeak and the stable's inmates are often better for going over fences; he's only a 6yo after all.

Won by 8l at Sandown in February (3m, soft) despite some scruffy jumping and very nearly followed up at Warwick (3m5f, soft; 4lb lower); probably needs significant cut underfoot and therefore last week's non-completion on good ground at Cheltenham is forgiven; possibilities.
