Dual winner over regulation fences but he's fluffed his lines in his last two hunter chases (either side of a run over hurdles), beaten as favourite at 4-6 and evens; perhaps needs further than 2m now and he'll probably be thereabouts.

Seven chase wins, the latest at Newton Abbot (2m, good) in April; continued in good form subsequently and good to soft ground may not have been ideal when he was below par at Newton Abbot last month, as he's done most of his winning on good/faster; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict
Looked likely to win at Ffos Las last month, on first start since November, but 2m3f seemed to stretch his stamina and he was collared at the final fence; just three attempts over fences and should be a leading player back at 2m, especially if cheekpieces offer some help; can jump right.

Displayed improvement to win by 8l over hurdles on seasonal debut at Bangor (2m, good) in August and recovered from significant mid-race jumping error to finish a respectable third on last month's chasing debut at Kempton (2m2f, good); can build on that performance here.
