Form & Verdict
Justified favouritism when winning over hurdles here (2m, good) last summer, and knocking at the door over fences; was unable to match the finishing kick of the winner (coming up the hill) when runner-up here (2m4f, good; 7-2 favourite) last month; interesting back over 2m.

Form & Verdict
Able to dominate when winning two of his last three starts at Sedgefield (2m1f & 2m3f, good) and rising steadily in the weights - a combined total of 14lb - as a result; is afforded respect, but with the suspicion that further rain would serve to lessen his chance of adding another win to his CV.

Fell at the final fence at Catterick three starts back before making all for a first career win (here, 2m3f, good; 7lb lower mark) on penultimate start; unable to successfully deploy those tactics over C&D last time (third), albeit that was another perfectly respectable effort; live contender.

Strongest over hurdles at Musselburgh, although was only narrowly beaten at Perth (2m, good to soft) on penultimate start; safely held third on recent C&D chasing debut (7-1), but this is a weaker race and he's likely to have taken plenty on board from that experience.

Did well to reel-in the subsequent winner Fulgurix (beat Blooriedotcom) when making a winning chasing debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) and is open to improvement from a 7lb higher mark; however, it's a distinct possibility that he ideally needs further than 2m, which does present a risk factor.
