Came good for Sarah Humphrey with two wins in March, the latter gained in small-field C&D event (soft); now 2lb below that mark and both his 3m runs here last month were respectable; probably won't be far way.

Not exactly solid judged on his bumper/hurdles form but looks a possible improver off modest mark on this handicap/chase debut; new trip; market support should be heeded.

Won twice when fitted with blinkers in September (2m7f/3m2f) and looked as good as ever when second at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) last month; not one to rely upon heavily but will be fine on today's ground and features prominently in calculations.

Both wins gained at Huntingdon just over a year ago; not much since until remarkable performance when third at Market Rasen last week, from 33lb out of the handicap; hard to place maximum faith in that but repeat certainly makes him of serious interest.
