Form & Verdict
Nearly two years since he won a couple of novice hurdles and was badly out of form earlier this year; perked up in a major way by this combination of aids (both on for first time) when close second to a subsequent winner at Uttoxeter last month and leading claims if repeating.

Ran quite well in a valuable 2m handicap at Haydock in April but he's not that consistent these days and his run here ten days ago was flat; dangerously treated should the change of headgear trigger something but, even then, his stamina is far from guaranteed over this far.
