Placed in three chases this season, most notably when second of 17 behind a dual subsequent winner at Ffos Las (3m, good to soft) in February; needs to bounce back from two disappointing runs last month but has a tongue-tie fitted today, and it's worth remembering that last summer's hurdling win was gained over 2m4f on good ground here.
