Off the mark for this yard when readily landing a small-field C&D Class 4 in February; unable to back it up at Musselburgh last month (Class 2 race but he was the top weight off a BHA mark of 115); needs a career best.

Usually gives his running and eked out a bit more improvement when a neck second of ten at Lingfield (2m7f, soft) in January; no obvious reason why he won't perform creditably again but he's creeping up the weights and this is undoubtedly the strongest opposition he's encountered.

Highly tried after winning his first two hurdle starts and he has come up short; mistakes blighted a chase campaign this winter and a return to hurdling didn't improve matters eight weeks ago (Class 2); dropping in the weights but there are risks attached.

Ended his time with Nicky Henderson under a cloud but emerged for new yard with wins in October and December; the latter followed wind surgery and came at Newbury (3m2f, soft; furthest he's been) where he emerged best in a fine scrap as the first two drew well clear; this 5lb higher mark may well underestimate that performance but he needs to bounce back from a disappointing show at Doncaster in January.

Has won both his chases for this yard, though was helped by a collapsing pace at Huntingdon (2m7f, good to soft) and it was hard work to follow up at Newbury (3m2f, soft; following a wind op); at least encouraging that the front two pulled clear last time and he could prove himself worthy of this 7lb higher mark.

Sent chasing this season; let down by his jumping on penultimate start but switching from cheekpieces to blinkers worked on latest, in which he easily won from the front in a six-runner handicap at Kempton (3m, soft) despite two mistakes; up 9lb, with another 2lb out of the handicap, but it's hard to pin down just how much he had in the tank in that breakthrough win.
