1-15 over fences but now 4-8 as a hurdler after back-to-back wins at Exeter, over 2m2f on good to soft and more impressive last time over 2m7f on heavy (with Freddie Gingell claiming 5lb); does love Exeter (four wins there) and his only other win came at another right-handed course in Wincanton, so going left-handed here might not be ideal.

Mixed form over fences last year and he took his hurdling record to 3-7 with a win when back in this sphere here (2m2f, good to soft) last month; that made it 3-3 here (including on soft) and he should be fine now back up in trip; has to be respected in view of his unbeaten record here.

Has form figures of 213 since switched to chasing, the win gained at Leicester (2m4f, good); not disgraced in higher grade last time (2m3f); open to further progress; major player provided he stays this longer trip.

The cheekpieces had been working well in handicaps at about 2m4f before he came up well short in a strong handicap at Cheltenham 19 days ago; didn't stay 3m here when trying it once before but conditions will be quicker this time and that should help.

The cheekpieces are working well as he's been competitive in his last three races at about this distance; however, he's come up short in weaker races than this the last twice and Harry Skelton could have ridden him.

Well suited by sharp/flat tracks, as his C&D win (on good ground) last May confirms; Cheltenham wasn't his thing in November and he duly bounced back at Ludlow (3m, soft; close second) last month; solid claims in another favourable scenario.

Dropped away after forcing the pace at Cheltenham a month ago when perhaps in need of the run; struck form in the spring, winning over C&D (good to soft) and following up at Kempton (good); 8lb higher than latterly but only a 7yo with just 11 runs behind him; considered.
