Won Worcester bumper (good to soft) on debut last September and was placed on good ground here (first-time hood) in November; unseated at the seventh on his hurdling debut over C&D last week but was still travelling well enough at the time and he was only 9-2 for that race; interesting contender.

Successful hurdle debut over 2m at Southwell (good to soft) last April; has made a race of it in three subsequent starts and his conqueror at Worcester (2m4f, good) last July has gone on to better things; might need this after layoff, though.

Opened hurdling account with hard-fought success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July, after a break, and made good start to chasing career when second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month; can pose a threat if the addition of cheekpieces has any positive effect.
