Has dropped a long way in the weights but rarely featured over the last two years and was a remote third, 19l behind Imperial Joe, at Taunton recently (2m3f, soft) on yard debut; has enough to prove these days.

Generally very disappointing in recent years but ran better than bare form suggests when 12l fifth at Fontwell (2m5f, good to soft) in January and has each-way claims on today's stable debut (was with Dai Burchell); cheekpieces refitted.

Four wins divided between hurdles/chases, the latest in this discipline when edging home at Sedgefield in February (3m3f, soft); very nearly went in again off this mark back there in April (2m5f, good) and it wasn't a bad run over fences last time.

Ran well in AW jumpers' bumpers early last year and he'd certainly be of interest if reproducing that ability today, but he's been a long way below that level on his six hurdle starts and is 8lb wrong at the weights today.

Well beaten on his last three starts (good/good to soft; two over hurdles) and it's hard to envisage him bothering stablemate Malpas; however, he was a fair fifth on his debut last December in a soft-ground bumper at Sedgefield and may have more to offer when back on a slower surface.
