0-8 in bumpers/hurdles but he made it second-time lucky over fences when scoring in good style at Taunton (2m7f, soft) three weeks ago; 9lb higher on this step back up in grade but he still looks feasibly treated on that latest form and is versatile ground-wise; dangerous.

Produced a strong finish to get off the mark in a 2m3f hurdle here in January (off this mark); promise in 3m points so no surprise to see him prominent in the betting ahead of his chase debut at Taunton 17 days ago, only to make a hash of the first; recovered well enough from that mistake but he ultimately weakened in the straight; still has potential over fences.

Rallied well to win off today's mark here (2m2f, good; also has form on heavy) for Nigel Hawke just under a year ago and was close second over hurdles here (3m, good) on seasonal/stable debut in November; not quite in same form in two subsequent chases but might be boosted by the addition of cheekpieces today.

Has had wind problems but was a front-running winner of two of his four chase starts two winters ago, including over C&D (good to soft; the other win on soft); cheekpieces worn last time now discarded; had his third wind surgery since; with his history he shouldn't be too far short of race fitness so makes more appeal than most.

Hurdle and multiple chase winner in France; failed to complete three of five British starts this season but his fourth at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) in January was respectable and last month's Fontwell run wasn't anything like as bad as his eventual 53l defeat might suggest.
