In a first-time tongue-tie and cheekpieces back on he won a 20-runner race at Cheltenham (2m5f, good to soft) in November; fair fourth at Taunton (2m3f) four weeks later but he found little when returned to 3m at Newbury since; better expected back in trip with his yard going well.

Returned to form in this headgear combination to win big-field handicap at Cheltenham (2m5f, good to soft) in November and fair fourth at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) next time; also effective on soft ground and this step back up in trip is worth a go; not ruled out.

Dual hurdle winner at about 2m4f (good to soft); wasn't at all convincing in his first two chases but came good under a prominent ride over C&D (good) two weeks ago when readily repelling the strong-finishing second; just 4lb higher for this similar sort of race and Freddie Gingell's claim takes away 3lb of that.
