Added to his solid record when sixth of 23 to Good Time Jonny in the Pertemps at Cheltenham (3m, soft), shaping a bit better than the bare result after getting messed about a bit approaching the last and also hitting the flight; fresh for this stage of the season and likely to give a good account.

Crept through the ranks over hurdles without doing lasting damage to his mark and his third in C&D qualifier in October (good), when picking up late on the run to the line, suggested there was still some better to come; all wins on good but he has run to form on soft; yard has won this four times.

Raced mainly at 2m7f-3m2f last term and it was a highly fruitful campaign, including four wins (here on third occasion); 2m and soft ground were both major worries when he reappeared three weeks ago, never figuring; a lot more interesting today but probably needs to resume improvement if he's to win.

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.
