All best form on good ground; nothing to prove regarding stamina but he's edged up the weights for defeats since his latest win, at Uttoxeter in June 2022, and a return to fences may be imminent (holds a Cheltenham entry in the Brown Advisory).

Generally progressive since handicapping; made an encouraging start to his chase career (came first and third) on first two starts this year before a poor show on latest outing; peak form is at 3m2f/3m5f (those chase runs) but he's one to note on this lower hurdles mark.
