Won last year on first two hurdle starts including at this track (2m5f, good); no joy in last three runs but he looked dangerous when falling two out at Wetherby in March and his latest fifth at Ayr (3m, soft) was a respectable effort; now drops back in trip and he's not ruled out back at the scene of his last win.
