Better on his handicap debut in January when upped from 1m to 1m3f (winner progressive); the drop to 9.4f didn't look ideal back in novice company latest when visor replaced usual cheekpieces; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Hurdles winner last spring who made a poor AW/handicap debut for his new yard over C&D last month off the back of wind and gelding operations; first-time headgear will need to make a difference.

Wildly contrasting fortunes lately, though is 2-2 at this track with his latest win coming over this trip 19 days ago; 4lb higher in a stronger race, though hard to dismiss given his liking for this venue.

Form & Verdict

Seven of his eight wins have come on Tapeta, five of them round here; lacks consistency now and didn't need to be at his best to land the odds in a weak Wolverhampton claimer last time but that may have boosted confidence.
