Only his second run over fences when coming some 8l clear at Warwick (2m4f, heavy) and he looks progressive; 8lb higher but can probably cope with that.

Longstanding maiden, best effort when a close third at Uttoxeter (3m, good) last summer; left David Loughnane after his next outing; new stable has been among the winners and market support would be significant.

Held every chance before last-fence mishap over C&D (good) in April but made amends back here ten days ago with a good round of jumping seeing him win by 18l; that race did rather fall apart and he's up 10lb, so no good thing to go in again.
