Unseated when favourite at Cheltenham in November; won handicaps on his last six completed starts, the latest when emerging narrowly on top at Taunton and the 2m3f that day is probably a minimum for him; further improvement at this trip may therefore deal with 4lb rise; all his improvement has been on good ground, having been well beaten in the mud at start of career.

Has thrived since tackling this trip and made it four from his last six when winning at Wincanton in January, handling soft ground well; doesn't do more than necessary so handicap mark has only crept up (4lb for latest success); cheekpieces return (has won on the Flat in them); plenty of appeal and stable remains in fine form.

Formerly quite useful on Flat and he's now come into his own over hurdles, winning four of last six starts, including latest; found only a handicap blot too strong when second of 16 over C&D (good to soft) on penultimate start, despite suffering significant early interference; lots to like but ground worse than good to soft would seemingly be a big worry.

Not the force of old and tailed off at Ayr last time; however, prior to that he showed some spark over C&D when runner-up to easy winner Wakool, and he's been given a chance by the handicapper; not ruled out.

Blooming in the autumn of his career; made it seven wins from his last ten starts when leading late on to beat stablemate Teescomponents Lad at Doncaster (3m, soft) three weeks ago; one of his previous successes came over C&D and he's fine on good ground as well; can't be ruled out but a further 5lb rise in the weights demands even more.

Four novice hurdles this season, on the up at Wincanton (2m5f, good) in the autumn before a lesser show there (2m4f, good to soft) when 6-5 favourite late last month; with stamina in the family, this step up in trip for handicap debut has to be very interesting.

Just too strong for short-odds rival when winning four-runner novice here in October and ran well in defeat here (also 2m5f, good) the following month; has the penalty to shoulder again today but the slightly shorter trip won't be a problem and he sets the hurdling standard.

Seems to need goodish ground and in first-time cheekpieces he ran out a ready winner at Newcastle in March (2m6f; four ran); no show at Haydock but that was a better race for which he was 20-1; Peter Kavanagh's claim brings him down to the same mark as for his recent win.

Drew well clear with a subsequent winner when bagging Hereford handicap in January and probably ran to similar level when runner-up in Class 2 event at Huntingdon (also 3m1f, good to soft) later that month; back in novice company here and has a significant role to play.
