Very useful chaser in his prime, and cashed in on some significant help from the handicapper when winning twice over hurdles this spring (2m2f/2m3f); today's longer trip may not be ideal but he benefits from Jack Andrews' useful 5lb claim this time; respected.

Won only start in bumpers; no real threat in three novice hurdles but attracted support ahead of last month's handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m2f, good to soft); sloppy round of jumping cost him dear and he did well to finish third; slightly longer trip could help and has claims if he can find more fluency; cheekpieces added.

Well handicapped on his best form and this 11yo showed he retains some ability after a long absence when fifth of 11 over C&D 13 days ago, fading only from the last having raced freely; claims if he can build on that.
