Two starts for this yard and off the mark when beating four rivals decisively at Huntingdon 11 days ago; this is more competitive and he's 8lb higher but this 5yo could prove up to the task.

0-6 over fences earlier in career but highly progressive over hurdles since joining this yard last season; in good form in that sphere the last twice and has a 9lb lower mark to work with now back chasing; course hurdle form figures read 112; very interesting.

Unplaced in first five starts for this yard but was a major market springer ahead of finishing close third in a Worcester chase when last seen in June; cheekpieces worn then replaced by returning tongue-strap; must be monitored for support again.

Veteran who is threatening to regain the winning thread, having finished second in three of his four runs this term; unlucky at Taunton (3m2f, good to soft) ten weeks ago, as he might have won but for stumbling after the final fence; possibilities up just 2lb.

Form & Verdict

Good second at Huntingdon last month on his return to hurdling/first time in cheekpieces but didn't repeat the effort at Exeter next time (weak in the betting); hard to rule out given the initial display; often leads.
