Looked an excellent prospect when making a winning hurdling debut in Doncaster maiden (2m4f) in January and wasn't discredited pitched into Grade 2 company when eighth at Haydock (3m) the following month; he remains with potential and holds leading claims back in these calmer waters.

Consistent in defeat over hurdles last season and built upon his encouraging seasonal/chase/handicap debut when wide-margin winner of three-runner beginners' chase at Haydock (2m, heavy) last month; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he's of strong interest here nevertheless.
