Form & Verdict

Tailed off at Huntingdon last month when back over hurdles but prior to that he was third to a progressive winner over this C&D and is firmly in calculations on that form; hood returns (has run okay in it).

Well beaten on Tapeta on last two starts in the autumn but she's had a break since and Polytrack may be her preferred surface; close third at Lingfield (1m2f) in August and she's very much a contender on that form.

Below par at Lingfield in November last time out when back from a 54-day break and he's won just one of his 35 races; however, that came over C&D in August among a solid spell of form, and he's capable of having a say.
