Chasing on last six starts and won three, including from the front over 3m at Exeter (heavy) and Sandown (good to soft) on last two outings; the latter was by just a head but he kept on well to hold off a course specialist and it would be no surprise if this 4lb higher mark proves within his compass.

Very effective on slow ground in France, winning a hurdle and four chases (2m1f-2m7f); still finding his feet for Venetia Williams but he took a step forward to be second at Exeter before not appearing to see out 3m5f on heavy ground at Lingfield; can see him going very well back at 3m.
