Justified favouritism in this race last year (good) off 2lb lower; ran well in September too but had a fall and wind surgery in October, since when he's been less competitive on the Flat but ran creditably in his last two hurdle races; interesting to see his market strength.

In the form of his life last summer, winning three times on the Flat and once over hurdles; edged out the reopposing Prydwen for his third Flat win at Ayr (1m5f) and had George Scott's charge a place behind him again when runner-up in a valuable 1m6f handicap at Newmarket's July meeting when last seen; big chance on those efforts but his peak fitness and effectiveness on AW (0-2) aren't assured.
