Warwick (2m) and Worcester (2m4f) good-ground winner a year ago and 5lb higher than for the latter; laid a useful marker for the summer back here in March, albeit his jumping again lacked fluency.

Inconsistent maiden hurdler; went close off 3lb higher here last October but nowhere near that form in two runs since; chance depends on how well he takes to fences and added cheekpieces.

In good form for new stable this year, most notably when winning easily by 7l at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) last month; had to settle for second at Fakenham (2m7f, soft) three weeks ago and is effectively another 2lb higher here but the drop back in trip looks the right move; major player.
