Old-timer who was still capable of useful form last season, finishing third of four in this race; however, age may now be catching up with him and he hasn't found much under pressure on his last two outings; opposable.

In career-best form last season despite his advancing years but he's not fired as he can in his last two starts some 92 days apart; worth taking on.

Form & Verdict

First start since wind surgery when scoring in decisive fashion at Huntingdon this month; can't argue with 7lb rise, still relatively unexposed and looks a lively candidate, assuming he repeats the effort.

Useful Flat form when fifth of nine in the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot (2m5f, good to firm; 40-1) this June; won soft-ground bumper here in 2021 and 2m novice handicap hurdle this May; improvement is needed but the step back up in trip offers some hope.

Form & Verdict

Four wins in 2021 but none since; chasing not really his scene and unable to recapture his best back hurdling; now on a decent mark if he could find top form on first start for seven months.
