Winless since last February and he's yet to hit top form this term, undergoing wind surgery before coming in a remote third of four at Southwell (2m4f) last month; others appeal more.

Promising and consistent novice chasing form last season, leading him to being ante-post favourite for the Grand Annual (missed race due to testing ground); disappointing 100-30fav for valuable Fairyhouse handicap chase four weeks ago but excuse for that effort when reportedly injured post race; 138-rated chaser of obvious interest back over hurdles where rated 121.
