Good record in the spring and notched a hat-trick around this time last year, latterly off tonight's mark; hasn't been in the same form this time round but woulnd't rule out a revival.

Won three good-ground chases last spring (2m7f-3m1f) and signed off in the autumn with a good hurdle run (3m1f, good to form); never really featured when reappearing in 2m3f hurdle on soft ground last month but that run might have done him good, and today's trip-and-ground combination will suit him much better.

Placed in both bumpers in 2020 and on all three hurdling starts this season (once here); managed only third when odds-on for Uttoxeter maiden (2m, good) six weeks ago but didn't run badly there and his Irish point form suggests today's trip should be within range; has a part to play.
