Has improved since handicapping and off the mark at Perth last month (good to soft), when getting upper hand near the finish; 4lb rise fair and, with the prospect of further progress, looks a major candidate.

Didn't jump great when winning at Southwell (2m, good to soft) but the hot favourite in second was even worse in that department; it could be dodgy form but they did at least pull clear; raised 5lb.

Often runs reasonably, as he did when third on the AW here in February (in first-time visor), but 0-45 in career; runner-up four times over hurdles but the elusive win may have to wait again.

Hasn't always been foot perfect over fences but he's won all three completed starts and was nicely on top in the latest at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft); progressive, and breeding offers plenty of optimism for him staying this longer trip.
