Did well to reel-in the subsequent winner Fulgurix (beat Blooriedotcom) when making a winning chasing debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) and is open to improvement from a 7lb higher mark; however, it's a distinct possibility that he ideally needs further than 2m, which does present a risk factor.

Able to dominate when winning two of his last three starts at Sedgefield (2m1f & 2m3f, good) and rising steadily in the weights - a combined total of 14lb - as a result; is afforded respect, but with the suspicion that further rain would serve to lessen his chance of adding another win to his CV.

Fell at the final fence at Catterick three starts back before making all for a first career win (here, 2m3f, good; 7lb lower mark) on penultimate start; unable to successfully deploy those tactics over C&D last time (third), albeit that was another perfectly respectable effort; live contender.

On a basement mark and this lightly-raced point winner may appreciate the switch to fences; however, he showed very little over hurdles on his sole run for Paul Nicholls and it's been the same story for this yard.
