Low-mileage 7yo who scored over fences at Worcester (2m7f, good) last June and, on second run following 345 days off, did so again this June when tongue tied first time; not proven beyond that but the latest win was pretty smooth and he can deal with the 5lb rise given today's opposition.

Two falls in three chasing starts sounds a warning note but he jumped well when winning at Warwick in April; looked likely to follow up at the same track last month until falling and strong claims if all goes well.

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.
