Form & Verdict

Won two Irish points and he's added a maiden hurdle here (2m) and a handicap chase at Doncaster to his tally since joining Henry Oliver; ran right up to his best when second in a stronger race at Doncaster in December and he isn't fully exposed over fences; serious contender.

10yo who is not easy to predict but he shaped as though he needed the run at Huntingdon on his recent return and he's 2-3 over C&D, including a win in this race (off 3lb higher) last year; looks interesting back at this track and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Form & Verdict

Won four of his first seven chases, all at around 2m on a range of ground; pulled up in his first three runs of this season and latest second of three at Leicester couldn't be considered a full revival; it does at least give him something to build on though and he's well treated again now.
