Consistent 9yo who has seemingly struggled with his revised mark since winning on soft ground at Ffos Las in November, beaten somewhere between 4l and 10l in four subsequent starts; it was only a Class 4 back at Ffos Las two weeks ago so he needs to raise his game.

Looked promising during 2018-19 season, winning a bumper and runner-up over 2m1f on his hurdling debut; disappointing since and well beaten both starts over fences last term, but he has tumbled in the weights and needs monitoring in the market after a year off.

Bumper winner who is 0-12 over jumps but he's well treated on his best form and was placed at Ffos Las (2m, soft) on his comeback last month; that was eyecatching and he was a heavily-backed favourite when unseating early on at Ludlow (2m4f) 25 days ago; needs to cut out the mistakes but he's a big player if he can put in a clear round.
