Three-time winner over staying trips, including here, but recent efforts have been underwhelming and cheekpieces failed to stop the slide last time; needs to rediscover his spark.

Sole success came here in a good-ground 2m7f chase in late 2022 (same mark); ran an encouraging first race back from wind surgery (again here on soft) and conditions were very testing at Chepstow last time; feasible contender now tried in cheekpieces.

Won narrowly over C&D in January but then comfortably defied a 6lb higher mark on his return visit over 3m2f; that's triggered a further 7lb rise but he's a sound jumper who looks sure to be involved.

Yet to add to his Irish hurdle win in 2020 and has a tendency to race lazily; ran no sort of race at Hereford two weeks ago; needs blinkers (replacing visor) to make a big difference.
