Point runner-up who has been generally progressive over hurdles and made it sixth time lucky in this sphere when justifying support in Chepstow maiden (2m, good) last month; hit with 4lb rise for that but he stayed on well to forge clear and is strongly respected back in a 2m3f handicap.

Went missing for nearly four years after winning a four-runner Aintree bumper for Nicky Henderson; well beaten here on his stable/hurdling debut but left that form behind to keep a smart Paul Nicholls favourite honest over C&D 24 days ago; that brings him right into it.
