Stayed on for fourth of 16 on handicap debut at Hexham (2m7f, good to soft) last month and didn't run badly when sixth over same C&D (good) 17 days later; 1lb wrong here but remains lightly raced and enters calculations.

Badly out of form over fences in 2021-22 season but, following a long absence, ran well to a point when back over hurdles here (2m7f, good) last month; today's drop back in trip will suit and, if that recent outing did him good, he's not a forlorn hope.
