Three chase wins over shorter trips, the latest of them last summer off 9lb higher; hasn't fired this winter but dropped in the weights and his yard is in rude health at present; revival not out of the question.

Progress levelled off over hurdles; made an uninspiring start over fences (tried in cheekpieces, left off since) but landed a gamble at Uttoxeter in February (3m, good to soft) and he saw off 13 rivals in good style at Chepstow three weeks ago; another 9lb higher in his bid for a hat-trick but he's the solid option.

Hint of ability in Irish points last spring; three hurdle runs less than inspiring but was still on the premises jumping two out here in January; sent straight over fences for his handicap debut and surprising if he weren't a much more potent force today.

Off the mark when impressively landing a 3m handicap hurdle here in April 2021 for Caroline Bailey; off the track for 581 days prior to a disappointing stable/chase debut at Hereford in November 2022; drops in class today and this should guide as to how much ability remains.
