Likes it here, three wins and a close second from six runs, and toughed it out well when just holding on over 2m4f last month (good); back up 3lb in first run beyond that trip; looks good for another solid effort.

Placed four consecutive times since breakthrough win at Exeter (2m2f, good to firm) in October and seems pretty versatile regarding ground; competes off new career-high mark here but probably won't be far away.

Mostly consistent since his breakthrough win at Exeter in October off a 10lb lower mark (2m2f, good to firm); found 2m3f around Warwick on the sharp side last time and his new jockey Jack Martin has ridden winners; good chance.

Opened his account at the fifth attempt in Irish points; clear second in novice hurdle at Taunton on rules debut, then justified favouritism at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft); looks open to further progress.

Form & Verdict
Returned from mammoth absence with two disappointing runs this winter but last month's Taunton fifth (2m, good to soft) was a step back in the right direction and today's move back up in trip will suit; sports refitted cheekpieces here and is too well handicapped to rule out.

Dropped in the weights after a dip in his performances and he's got back on track of late with placed efforts on good ground at Wincanton (2m4f) and Kempton (2m5f); beaten further last time (about 8l) but he returned with a wound on his leg; should be a factor.

0-5 and generally disappointing since returning from long absence in December but suggested he might be ready to exploit some significant help from the handicapper when clear second in military riders' race at Wincanton (2m4f, good) last month.

Smart hurdler/chaser in his prime but has regressed; will find this easier than the valuable Ascot handicap in which he was pulled up last month but he still needs to turn things around.
