Made it three wins for the season when scoring at Huntingdon (2m, soft) last month, with the other two coming on good ground; it was a career-best performance last time and he's on the shortlist today.

Won twice over hurdles in the spring (2m6f/3m2f) and ran game race in defeat over fences here (3m1f, good) ten days ago but some of today's rivals have more potential and this drop back in trip may not be ideal; cheekpieces refitted.

Won four-runner maiden hurdle at Leicester (1m7f, good to firm) last November and soft ground may not have suited in Sandown handicap next time; however, he's failed to shine on the Flat this year which dents confidence in his claims on this chase debut.

Point winner who has proved consistent under rules and, while he could do with settling better, looks likely to perform creditably once again; addition of tongue-tie may squeeze out more from him.
