Hat-trick of Fontwell 2m3f wins since a hood was fitted; doesn't seem to do more than necessary so has only edged up the weights; faces a much tougher task in this company but foolish to rule him out.

Exceeded market expectations when eighth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last March; has been running well this winter but his sole handicap win came at Cartmel (2m1f, heavy) last July and he's still 6lb higher, so it's likely he has his share of weight; cheekpieces (tried once in 2022, Flat) are refitted.

Conditions will be borderline as he's ideally suited by good/faster ground; two wins at about 2m4f last summer took his strike-rate over fences to 7-11 but a combination of a career-high mark and good to soft ground contributed to his defeat in the Old Roan at Aintree when last seen in October (under Joe Anderson); others would appear to have more going for them.
