Won two novices over hurdles; found only one too good on his switch to fences at Southwell (2m4f, good) where his jumping was sound; should come on for that run and have every chance off just 2lb higher.

The cheekpieces had been working well in handicaps at about 2m4f before he came up well short in a strong handicap at Cheltenham 19 days ago; didn't stay 3m here when trying it once before but conditions will be quicker this time and that should help.

The cheekpieces are working well as he's been competitive in his last three races at about this distance; however, he's come up short in weaker races than this the last twice and Harry Skelton could have ridden him.
