Form & Verdict

Remained a maiden over hurdles but he was impressive on his switch to fences here (3m1f, good), jumping well and coming clear of three rivals; didn't see it out as well as the front two on softer ground at Hereford (3m1f; off this 5lb higher mark) and another slog in the mud, over even further, could find him out.

In poor form when pulling up in this 12 months ago when a 25-1 chance (stable still won it); returns in much better nick having won four of his last five starts and he was nicely on top in the finish at Doncaster (3m2f, good; 5lb lower); his recent improvement has come on good ground but he has won in the mud before; needs respecting.

Kicked off his chase career with back-to-back handicap wins in the north (3m, good to soft; 3m3f, soft) before failing to complete his next two; got back on track at the beginning of this campaign over hurdles and he perhaps failed to take to blinkers last time (usual cheekpieces are back on); returns to fences on a tough mark, though.
