Off the mark over fences at the fourth attempt when winning easily at Bangor (3m, good) and, following an 8lb rise, he bumped into a smart chasing recruit at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft); given a further 2lb nudge for that but easy to see him running well.

His only chase win came on heavy ground over Stratford's 2m6f last April when 3lb lower; remains lightly raced; made a pleasing return here over 3m1f before he ran well for a long way over Cheltenham's extended 3m3f (soft) in November; while that weakish finish casts some stamina doubts over this far, today's track is easier and the company not so demanding; the return of cheekpieces is probably a good thing as well; big player.

Just his second racecourse appearance when making a successful hurdling debut at Warwick in May (2m3f; well on top at the finish); that form is probably not good enough to take this, under a penalty, but improvement very likely; wind surgery since and a tongue-strap also fitted.
