Maiden; not at his best over 2m5f on last two starts (first-time cheekpieces latest, discarded here) but was the only one to give a subsequent good winner a workout at Doncaster in January (3m, good to soft) and a return to that form would make him worth considering.

Placed on five of his last six starts, most recently when second over C&D (good to soft) a fortnight ago; now 0-22 over hurdles and the refitted cheekpieces are of uncertain benefit (tailed off when they were used once last spring) but there's a good chance he'll be on the premises again.

0-10 under rules but his most recent run, when second of 11 over 2m7f at Bangor (soft), was one of his best; has to prove his stamina over an extra 3f (mixed messages from his pedigree) but if stays the longer distance he should be in the mix.
