Expensive to follow having been a beaten favourite in four of his five runs since bumper win, latest on chase debut four months ago; somewhat risky but first-time cheekpieces may do the trick and he certainly has the ability to win a race of this nature (hurdles form stacks up well).

Perhaps unsuited by soft ground when pulled up in March (2m7f maiden) on final start last term; did not last long when reappearing for chase/handicap debut at Doncaster (2m3f) three weeks ago, which sees him back over hurdles today and there is plenty of stamina in his pedigree.
