0-15; one place and about 4l ahead of Goldrapper at Hexham last time, but still beaten over 20l himself and continues to operate below the level of last autumn's peak chasing efforts; percentage call to oppose, for all that latest 4lb drop gives mark an ever more realistic look.

Best recent form has been over fences, beaten less than 3l at Market Rasen in November (2m5f, good); his handicap form as a hurdler leaves much to be desired, including latest effort; cheekpieces added.

Closest finish since his winning pointing days of last year when second in a Fakenham novices' handicap hurdle last time (3m, good); often likes to press on with things and hails from an immediate family full of chase winners, so no great shock if he immediately takes to this discipline.

Wind surgery and fitting of a visor have put a halt to the run of pulled-up efforts he was compiling, with last month's Perth third (3m, good to soft) counting as his best effort in over a year; more needed, but dangerous to rule out whilst still 17lb below his last winning mark.

Point winner who won over 2m4f over both hurdles (here) and fences (Ayr) in 2020; however, has pulled up on five of subsequent six starts and, although wind weaked and visor on (replacing cheekpieces), he'll only be of interest if market speaks.

On the mark again over 2m at Hexham last month (good to soft), but re-raised past any winning mark for that and was never travelling when posting a very flat follow-up bid back there last time; may yet bounce back, though untried beyond 2m4f since his Irish pointing days.
