Pipped a bang-in-form opponent to open hurdling account over C&D (good) in October, his second handicap, and reverts to hurdling after a recent AW win; likely to make his presence felt.

Better for cheekpieces in the autumn and was nicely on top in winning back-to-back 1m handicaps here and at Chelmsford; up only 2lb for last time and solid chance if clicking into gear after four months off.
