Won three on the bounce earlier this year on good ground (two hurdles here and a Flat handicap) and showed that softer ground holds no fears when looking as though he would win at Sandown before getting outstayed over 2m on heavy; should stay this far under these conditions and this mark isn't beyond him.

Two Flat wins in 2021; has been too free in all three hurdling starts but it hasn't stopped him shaping with some promise, notably when fifth at Ludlow latest; makes handicap debut off an attractive mark though ability to act on genuinely soft ground is open to question.
