0-6 on Flat in France; second of 13 at Musselburgh (2m1f, good to soft) five weeks ago on handicap hurdle debut, so he enters each-way calculations, but probably needs to improve again.

Consistent 5yo who is fine over 2m and 2m4f; heavy ground perhaps not ideal last time when first tried in a tongue-tie and could run well if back on song, for all that he might now be too high in the weights.

532 days off before this season; took a step back in the right direction when tongue-tied first joined cheekpieces on penultimate start (they've been kept since) and he built on that when making all over 2m at Wetherby on latest, both under Dylan Johnston; back up 4lb but his old form was a fair bit better and there was more in the tank last time; shortlisted.

All four wins have been on good ground including two at at Kelso (2m5f/2m2f) in September; his last success was off 1lb higher but he's been well held back on slow ground in his last three runs and conditions could be an issue again here.
