His jumping lacked fluency when he was tailed off on chase debut at Market Rasen on Boxing Day; something to prove over fences but he's a four-time winner over hurdles here (soft/good) and the return to this track could prompt a big performance.

Two 2m wins in 2023, last February (good to soft) and May (good), and ran well in defeat over C&D in between; she doesn't really fall into the progressive category but was caught on the hop by an improver (now rated 16lb higher) at Plumpton in January and shouldn't be far away back here.

Became very disappointing over hurdles last season and, after running well to a point, faded out of contention on last month's chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good; first-time blinkers; well backed); today's drop back in trip could be a good move but his overall profile is not convincing.
