Both chasing wins gained on good to firm at Exeter, the latest 13 months ago; didn't fire last season so enough to prove on return from five months off, though has won after a break and 9lb lower than for latest win.

Last win was in May 2022 off a 9lb higher mark; no worthwhile form in his six subsequent appearances and does have a lot to prove right now.

Stayed on well to win this race by 12l off a 9lb higher mark a year ago but was out of form on his three appearances in the autumn, and it's hard to say anything positive about last month's reappearance run (albeit the ground was softer than he prefers); needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces.

Well backed when reverting to fences at Newcastle (2m7f, soft) in November and bounced back to form with a win; his inconsistent profile is a concern but he remains well treated back up 5lb and has won over C&D.

Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles on this card a year ago and back to form, in first-time cheekpieces, when runner-up at Newbury last month; well beaten on only chasing attempt, in December 2019, so ability to transfer the latest effort not guaranteed; best on ground no quicker than good.
