Runner-up at Cheltenham's hunter chase meeting last April (2m) before winning easily at Cartmel (2m5f); looked on good terms with himself when winning two points during November and this softer ground shouldn't present a problem.

Created very good impression on rules return at Taunton (2m7f, soft) in January but is yet to build on that performance, and was just a respectable third at Cheltenham (2m, good) last month; today's move back up in trip ought to suit but he still needs to up his game.

Strong claims on last spring's hunter chase form and his recent third to Haven't Time at Southwell (3m, soft) was a step back in the right direction; however, he certainly needs another today, having been beaten 13l.
