Won a novice hurdle at Hexham in March and some solid form in defeat since, including a placed effort at Cartmel on his penultimate outing; not as good at Uttoxeter last time but his 7lb lower mark over here certainly helps; best form is on good.

Form & Verdict
Unseated at the first at Kempton in March so was effectively making his return from more than three years off when fifth to Eglantine Du Seuil over C&D last month; 9lb pull not enough on its own to turn the tables but may well have benefited from the outing; not without hope.

Returned to form with a Cheltenham second and built on it when scoring over C&D last month (first pair clear); 7lb higher but travelled well through that latest race and may be able to defy it.
