Very able when fresh and only 1lb higher than when winning a soft-ground 2m handicap at Aintree in November 2019, since when he's only raced three times; current wellbeing is an issue but no surprise should he be involved; last season's defeats were over hurdles.

Grade 2 winner over hurdles and as novice chaser (good and soft); had looked as if his best days were behind him but another wind surgery seems to have done the trick and he was springheeled when winning the Grand Annual at Cheltenham (2m, heavy); speedy type who should be just as effective on this sharp track and a 7lb higher mark is chickenfeed on old form.

Not disgraced in good races over hurdles this year; showed useful novice chase form two seasons ago, winning Kempton Grade 2 then fourth in the Arkle; however, pulled up in last two attempts over fences.

Continues to slide down the handicap and solid efforts on first three outings this season; not as good at Sandown latest and seems to have lost the zip that was evident two/three years ago; can make the running.

Back in better form since having wind surgery, clear second behind Gunsight Ridge over C&D most recently; this formerly smart chaser has possibilities off current mark.

Form figures of 321 since switched to chasing and capable of further improvement; second to smart rival on penultimate start (good to soft) then went one better over C&D (heavy) four weeks ago, beating Bun Doran; respected.

Point winner who got better with each run over hurdles and has made a promising start over fences, unfortunate to encounter the exciting L'Homme Presse at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) five weeks ago; shaped well on his only outing on heavy ground; today's drop back in trip is a slight concern but he's open to further progress and an obvious contender.
