Unexposed 5yo who was second of 15 on handicap hurdle debut in the spring and made promising seasonal/chase debut when clear second at Stratford (2m5f, good; first run after wind op) last month; should build on that recent effort and commands respect.

Now 3-3 at Newbury following two wins there last month (2m4f, heavy/good to soft); well beaten in hot handicap at Aintree (2m, soft) last Thursday and it remains to be seen if he'll reproduce his Newbury form on his first visit here, but the step back up in trip is a plus and he's not ruled out.

Acts on any ground; has raced over about 2m4f for over two years and while he comes here in the form of his life following two Newbury wins (on heavy and good to soft) he was hard pressed to win the latest and a further 6lb rise is the thanks he's had; a new set of skills is needed in his first 2m chase.

Gained all three chase wins over C&D, the latest in May (good ground); not seen again since but won't mind if there's rain about and is probably still on a workable mark after a 4lb rise.
