Placed on first three starts before winning on last month's hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft; unraced on softer); had 6l to spare and he's open to further improvement for his top yard; key player.

Below the best of his hurdle form in three runs over fences and failed to quash stamina doubts over this far when a weakening third last time at Kempton (3m, good to soft); Dan Skelton happy to persevere with this trip, however, and he's on a perfectly good mark.

Finished a creditable third of seven finishers over 2m4f at Doncaster (good to soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained); his current mark shouldn't be beyond him but he hasn't looked to relish a stamina test in two runs beyond that trip and there are more certain stayers in the field.

Unplaced favourite at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft) last month but drops back in trip here and he's of interest on his previous fifth of 16 there (2m3f, good to soft) in a hot maiden; ran well on heavy ground in a bumper.

Good third of six at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last month on his second chase start and that form has worked out extremely well; this very lightly raced 7yo can play a leading role if this return to a left-handed track isn't an issue (jumped to the right here on his chase debut in February).

Some late headway in novice company at Wetherby (2m3f, soft; 28-1; beaten 43l) last month; possibly will prove suited by this slightly longer trip on handicap debut but chasing could prove his long-term forte.
