He has to improve markedly upon his last three performances (3m/3m1f, soft/heavy) to make an impact today; however, before those he stayed on well for third of four on his chase debut in a hot novice at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft) and today's expected return to better ground could help him tap back into that promise; on an attractive mark on the chase debut form.

Has course form over hurdles and was far from disgraced in the Albert Bartlett here (3m, soft) last March; chasing type who made a useful start over fences when third of four over 3m here (good to soft) in October and although he hasn't gone on from that in two runs since, and his handicap debut was disappointing in December, the early form puts him in the picture; fitting a tongue-tie could also help on return from a break.
