Having a fine season with four wins and two seconds, latest success coming with cheekpieces on for the second time at Haydock last month (3m, first win on soft ground); headgear retained, up another 7lb and having first run at 3m2f; one with a chance.

Did very well in handicap hurdles in the first half of the season, winning three and runner-up twice at up to 3m on good/good to soft; also has form on heavy and he's a contender back from a five-month break with a first-time tongue-tie added to his cheekpieces.

Staying-on second at Fontwell off 2lb lower a fortnight ago (2m6f, good), and whilst not hitting the line hard over today's longer trip in Irish points that latest evidence hints it could be within compass now.

Well clear of Coconut Twist when fourth at Exeter last month (2m2f, good); served notice again there that a longer trip may suit, and gets chance to prove as much in no deeper an 0-100; cheekpieces added.

Cut out at the last when still leading twice last winter, and could be everything tonight hinges on the wind surgery helping him when he needs it most; trip/ground fine and mark 11lb below his last winning one.

In the frame on all three 2m4f hurdle runs; winners at up to 3m2f in family offer hope on this second try at a staying trip, a first-fence chasing unseat here last time obviously revealing little; hood added.

Put in fairly good front-running shift when fourth at Hexham (2m4f, good; first-time blinkers) last month but was pulled up when last in action and his overall profile remains unappealing; cheekpieces back on today; 2lb out of the weights.

Took big step back in right direction and put in fairly good front-running shift when fourth at Hexham (2m4f, good; first-time blinkers) three weeks ago but is effectively 4lb higher from out of the weights here and his overall profiles remains unappealing.
