Rattled off a hat-trick over hurdles in March (2m/2m1f) but three fairly comprehensive defeats over fences at 2m; this longer trip is worth exploring again but he's 11lb above his last winning mark.

Useful handicap chaser for Sam Thomas in 2021-22 season but returned from long absence with two non-completions in points towards end of last year; steadied the ship with respectable third at Kimble (conditions) last month but others look much stronger here; hooded for first time.

Comfortable win when upped in trip at Hereford (3m1f, good) in December and bounced back from Market Rasen flop (3m3f, soft) with a win at Hereford (3m1f, good) in January; takes a steep rise in grade today but this strong-travelling sort could have more to offer for a trainer enjoying an excellent season; won on soft/good to soft over hurdles.

Better than ever at the age of nine, travelling strongly and looking the winner a long way out when scoring at Hereford (3m1f, good) six weeks ago; easy winner on soft ground over hurdles last season; still has untapped potential and may be able to absorb a 6lb rise.

The step up to an extended 3m never bothered him when bringing up his hat-trick at Southwell (good) but after a break and wind surgery he fared less well over Cheltenham's 3m1f; it could be that he's too high in the weights now.
