His jumpers' bumper win in February shows he's got some ability but hurdle record is a bit patchy; tongue-tie now given a go; others appeal more.

Form & Verdict
Veteran who is 4-21 over hurdles, including success at Plumpton (3m1f, good; cheekpieces) on his penultimate start; went up 7lb for that and matched that effort when third at Southwell (3m, good; cheekpieces) latest; should be competitive.
