Won over 1m6f on the Flat in Ireland; after two near misses (one behind Soldat Forte) he probably didn't need to improve to win at Warwick (2m3f, good); entitled to be right there.

Has thrived over hurdles for this yard, winning a 2m3f maiden and a pair of 2m events in his last three starts; successful over 1m6f on the Flat in Ireland last summer and he's a big player off a workable mark back in this sphere.

Delivered on promise shown in bumpers when scoring on hurdle debut at Southwell (2m, good to soft) in April and was runner-up on both subsequent appearances (both on good); ought to be suited by today's step up in trip and is likely to play another significant role.
