Won his second hurdle race when scoring nicely at Ballinrobe (2m6f) last time and raised 7lb to this mark; not an easy task making chasing debut under top-weight but talented claimer stays aboard.

Posted his best hurdle effort when winning off 95 at Ballinrobe in May and followed up with a career best chase success; not as good over hurdles since though and might find this trip on the sharp side.

Left all previous form behind when winning at Ascot in December; handicapper let him off with a 7lb rise for that and while he's 3lb out of the handicap for this assignment, he's ahead of his mark anyway; different ground and shorter trip this time but respected.
