Last raced on the Flat in 2022, when seen to best effect over 2m on AW; while there have been two wins over hurdles since, his latest start in that sphere (last October) was a heavy defeat and there is a great deal for him to prove on ground softer than good.

Maiden after 19 starts; hasn't enjoyed much luck in six outings for this stable (failed to finish three of them when on the premises); no match for the winner when second at Uttoxeter last month but repeat of that makes him of some interest, assuming he avoids mishaps.
