Beaten in his first two bumpers but he got off the mark by 6l at Ascot (good) and followed up on the AW at Lingfield; the latter race was run at tepid fractions and he was in the right place to assert, but he's a good looker with better days ahead of him and perhaps Britain's best chance.

Fine second in a pair of bumpers last autumn (good to soft, good), holding every chance deep into both; embryonic chaser rather than necessarily a 2m hurdling type, but starting out at a realistic level and won't mind a dry-out (missed run last week due to soft ground).

Unplaced in three bumpers towards end of 2021 but has shown significant improvement on his two hurdling starts this year, more recently when close/clear second at Ascot (2m3f, soft) last month; travelled strongly for a long way there and can probably do better again in due course but this is a very daunting assignment.

Up for the fight in winning non-handicaps at Wincanton (good to soft) and here (heavy); questionable as to what he actually achieved last time on such desperate ground and especially as they won't no gallop; this should be a different ball game altogether.

Initial runs weren't without promise and he then battled well to floor the long odds-on favourite at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft; Learntalot fourth); should be okay on this softer ground but will probably need to find some more if he's to defy the penalty.
