Irish bumper winner and came home by nearly 5l in a 2m novice hurdle on heavy ground at Exeter on New Year's Day; couldn't repeat that form under a penalty on good to soft at Huntingdon but this ground should be more to his liking now tackling handicaps.

Well beaten over C&D (soft) last time; he can be effective on soft/heavy going but better ground may be preferable and he's very much of interest on his fine efforts last autumn, when winning at Kelso (3m2f, good) and finishing second of 20 at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft); on the shortlist.

The winner of a bumper (on soft) and two novice hurdles; well held in a good Ascot 2m7f handicap just before Christmas and perhaps found 2m3f on the tight side when a keeping-on third at Doncaster; that was a good effort and he should be right in the thick of things.

Kept to hurdles for three seasons but he is making great strides as a chaser, following a Leicester win with one from the front at Haydock (both 2m4f on heavy) where he didn't waste an ounce of energy at his fences; a further 8lb rise asks for more in this better company, though.
