Dual hurdle winner at about 2m3f on slow ground; got off the mark over fences at the sixth attempt when scoring over C&D (soft) on his penultimate start; things seemed to happen a bit too quickly for him when dropped to 2m1f (good) at Plumpton latest; not written off.

This trip could be on the short side but it was a likeable display when getting off the mark over fences at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft; fine on drier ground) and, overall, he probably has the least to prove here even off a 7lb higher mark.

Failed to beat a rival on his chase debut here last month but he's a four-time hurdle winner who went close here (2m4f, good to soft) on his return in November; looks interesting on that form but he's untried beyond 2m4f and this is a new challenge back over hurdles; mixed messages.
