Comes with obvious risks attached having unseated the last twice; however, granted a clear round he has the ability to have a big say, as he was third in the Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle (2m4f, good to soft) last April and won in fine style on his chase debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in October; has had wind surgery since his last run.

Has taken well to fences, bettering his hurdles form and scoring in small fields over 2m at Newton Abbot, Carlisle and Lingfield (good to soft/heavy); however, he was beaten 16l by Edwardstone in a Grade 1 at Sandown in December and it's hard to see him playing much more than a minor role.

Very useful hurdler who began chasing career with two wins in the autumn, the latter in valuable Carlisle graduation chase (2m, good to soft); kept on for very respectable second in Sandown Grade 1 (1m7f, good to soft) last month and ought to cope with today's slower ground; probably won't be far away.

Prone to making mistakes and he was below par when a well-beaten third in Grade 1 at Sandown three weeks ago; however, he may have paid for trying to keep tabs with the exciting L'Homme Presse and has leading claims under a 5lb penalty if recapturing the form shown when easily winning a Grade 2 at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft) in December; won on good ground in October.

Has a blemished chase record, having fallen/unseated in three of his seven attempts over fences, but he's very useful and completed the course for an easy success in Grade 2 at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft; generally jumped adequately) in December, atoning for his unlucky loss in same grade at Newbury the time before (in pole position when departing four out); big player provided he stays on his feet.
