Triple chase winner who dug deep when scoring at Hereford (2m, soft) in January; reportedly suffering from an irregular heartbeat when disappointing at Chepstow but bounced back with a good second at Wincanton 12 days ago; probably wouldn't want the ground to dry out but he still looks on a workable mark and has possibilities if conditions are in his favour.
