Arrives on a hat-trick after recent handicap wins around 2m4f at Chepstow and Ascot, scoring emphatically on latter occasion 23 days ago; up another 6lb but he's thriving at present and still not taken lightly.

Ex-French recruit who opened his account for his current yard in 2m5f Fontwell handicap chase in March, only to disappoint when remote sixth at Exeter (3m) a fortnight ago; blinkers replace cheekpieces now with a bit to prove.

Faded rather tamely in home straight at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) last month, after a break, and is now 0-5 over fences; on a tempting mark now and should be fine on today's ground but needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces.
