Promising debut behind subsequent winners over C&D (good to soft) and rallied well to win at Doncaster in February (good); the return to a stiff track looks sure to suit but he will do well to win under the penalty.

Dual bumper winner last season and has made the frame on all four hurdling starts this term, most recently when fourth in Taunton handicap (2m, good; first-time cheekpieces) last month; today's longer trip won't be a problem and he ought to play a major role now back in novice company.

A better horse now than when behind Fire Flyer in December; only narrowly outpointed by the penalised Hasthing at Catterick (soft) before a strong finish saw him get the better of the smart Inthewaterside (also penalised) in a 2m3f novice at Ascot (good to soft); improving all the time and has to rate a strong contender.

Placed in two bumpers last spring (both on good to soft) and has since laid a sound foundation for his hurdling career, giving the impression he might have won at Catterick (2m3f, soft; first two well clear) five weeks ago with a slicker jump at the last; likely to continue on an upward curve.

Has stamina in the pedigree and there was plenty to like about his Ffos Las debut in March (good) where the leading group got away from him but he came through to take second late on; looks sure to improve and the 4yo allowance is helpful.
