Grade 1 winner as a novice hurdler last term; never going well on debut over rules fences but has fared much better in cheekpieces since, defying top weight in novice handicap at Aintree (2m4f, soft) then creditable second at Exeter (2m3f, heavy); headgear retained; another strong Pendil contender for Paul Nicholls, who has won this race 13 times.
