Both chase wins this term have been at Navan, notably defeat of Nick Rockett in 3m Grade 2 Ten Up Novices' on heavy; nothing like that form in Brown Advisory at Cheltenham however, some major blunders; jumping remains a concern at this level.

Has set or equalled peak RPRs over both hurdles and fences in 2m4f Perth contests latterly, albeit his C&D chase second off this mark in July (good) featured jumping errors and a refusal to settle; weighted to reverse Cartmel form with A Different Kind, though 0-16 record is offputting.

0-5 over hurdles and 0-15 overall but recent efforts over fences have been perfectly respectable, and he matched his best RPR (124) when second here (2m4f, good) last month; won't mind if there's rain about and has good chance at the weights on this return to hurdling.

Backed down to favouritism to land an ordinary maiden hurdle at Navan in June, weakening when falling three out; very free in both races to date but this looks a lot more taxing in any case.
