Largely solid record over fences includes form figures of 1112 (over 2m4f-3m1f) this season; latest effort came at Aintree (soft) behind the very useful Giovinco, who has since performed well at Grade 2 level; may still have further progress in him; respected off unchanged mark.

Displayed improvement to make winning handicap debut at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in December; needs to bounce back from a poor performance at Huntingdon later that month but moves up in trip today and could still have potential.

Relatively lightly raced 7yo; off the mark in a Leicester handicap (2m4f, soft) in December and bounced back from a major blip when runner-up at Market Rasen (2m7f, soft) last month; had the run of things in front that day but unexposed as a stayer and is open to more progress; in the mix.

2-7 over hurdles; looked suited by step up in trip when staying-on third behind Shighness over C&D (good to soft) last month, and that was effectively his first run after a long layoff; big player if that outing did him good.

Form & Verdict

Caused 20-1 surprise in Carlisle novice (2m3f, soft) in November but was pulled up on subsequent handicap debut; didn't run badly when back in novice company at Carlisle last month but his profile remains somewhat unconvincing; moves up in trip and sports first-time cheekpieces here.

Won two novice hurdles last season (2m3f/2m) and was given a positive ride when ultimately third behind a well-handicapped winner on his return at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft); perhaps flattered to some extent there but off the same mark he's hard to rule out.
