His 21st defeat when turned over at odds-on in a maiden hurdle here last time but it wasn't a bad run and, not for the first time, he had previously gone close in a handicap; if taking to fences he won't be far away.

Close second in a C&D handicap on Sunday so brings very recent form to the table; still a maiden after 20 attempts, which suggests vulnerability, but should be in the shake-up again.

Form & Verdict
With a good stable but it's been ropey stuff in his five handicaps over hurdles, from 2m1f to 2m4f; does go chasing off a reduced mark and perhaps he'll fancy this different challenge.

Dual 2m chase winner at the end of 2021 (good/good to firm) when visor first fitted; back to some sort of form when third at Stratford but the reapplied blinkers are worrying when he pulled up in them once before.
