Having his fourth start over fences when edging home at Hereford (3m1f, soft) but he failed to back it up when well held at Exeter and heavy ground shouldn't have been an issue; remains on the same mark, so 8lb higher than for his win.

Point winner but 0-24 under rules; went very close in a 2m7f Downpatrick handicap chase on his stable debut last month and placed over hurdles 19 days ago; can't be discounted but he has to race off a 13lb higher mark than his Irish chase mark.

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.
