An impressive Exeter win was not his only good run in bumpers last season and he powered clear to collect by some 21l on his switch to hurdling at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie; RPR 134); could be decidedly smart.

Consistent gelding but has won only once, over 3m on heavy ground at Exeter on New Year's Day (5lb lower); the obvious worry is that he's unraced beyond 3m1f and was quick enough to be competitive over 2m; might get outstayed but perhaps the most likely winner if he did see it out.

Upped to 3m1f when making all in a Warwick maiden (3m1f, good) last May; pulled up next two starts since and, after wind surgery, well beaten at Exeter (2m7f) 17 days ago but that was a step back in the right direction; needs overall improvement and 7lb claimer takes over.

Well involved in good-ground races at Huntingdon (beaten narrowly; sole run for Fergal O'Brien) and Southwell (2l third); should be thereabouts again, provided he's as effective on forecast slower surface.
