Improvement when winning on reappearance at Wetherby (3m, soft) then good third behind Animal at Sandown (3m, soft); ran well for long way in ultra-attritional Welsh National over Christmas (3m6f, heavy; well-beaten fourth) and this progressive 8yo could go well if that hard race hasn't left a mark.

Scored in good style at Wetherby last month and creditable third at Sandown (again 3m on soft) 19 days ago; going beyond 3m (first time today) may well suit him but position 12lb out of the handicap makes for a very stiff task.
