11-race maiden but only two starts over fences and was close second at Hexham (1m7f, heavy) last week; nudged up 3lb but he still looks feasibly treated and has form at up to 2m5f over hurdles; dangerous in another change of headgear.

Tailed off on chase debut here (3m, heavy) a fortnight ago but he's never convinced over that trip and he ran okay for a fair way; good third over hurdles at Ayr (2m5f, heavy) in January when wearing first-time cheekpieces and perhaps the first-time blinkers will give him a boost today.
