Placed behind same useful rival in both bumpers last season; dropped out of contention very tamely on hurdle debut at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft) in November but shaped with significant promise before penultimate-flight fall at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in February and has big role to play here.

£7,000 buy in January having won a 1m7f Wincanton maiden for Nicky Henderson in April 2023; disappointing on both starts after that; tried in a tongue-tie for stable/chase debut.

Comfortably won run-of-the-mill maiden hurdle at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in April but was pulled up on handicap debut the following month and made disappointing chase debut four weeks ago; now sports blinkers; Nico de Boinville evidently prefers Touchy Feely.

Best hurdling effort came on good ground last spring (1m7f, first-time hood) and he shaped well back on a sound surface on his 2m Huntingdon chase debut last month, upsides under hand riding when falling at the last; capable of winning a handicap chase off a mark in the 90s on that evidence.

The combination of a first-time hood and more patient tactics were offered as an explanation for the improved form shown when a clearcut winner at Worcester (2m maiden) in September; has run to a similar level (on RPR's) over further since; probably a shade high in the handicap.

Needs to bounce back from a disappointing effort at Taunton last month but made quite promising hurdle debut when fourth of 17 at Exeter (2m, heavy) in January, and that performance makes him of interest here.
