Three C&D wins in 2023; suffered dip in form on AW in February/March and had to settle for midfield finish over C&D when back on turf ten days ago; needs to up his game but, given his course record, can't be ruled out.

Hurdle winner who recorded his first placing on the Flat when a close third at Chelmsford in December; David Probert takes over in the saddle (has been running in amateur races) but dropping to 1m after an absence isn't sure to suit.
