Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.

Swerved at the start and refused to race two runs ago; second of six at Ffos Las (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) on latest, however, was close to his best form and puts him back in the reckoning.

Modest hurdle form this season sandwiches a front-running 2m win at Ascot last month on a rare Flat outing; 3lb higher mark to contend with and things are unlikely to pan out so favourably in this big field.

Took a step back in the right direction when third in a first-time visor (retained since) at Newcastle last month, and built on that when winning there a fortnight ago (2m4f, good); back up 4lb but he had 3l to spare and remains well treated on his old form; can give another good account.

Followed his second at Bangor (2m, good) with a 10l maiden win at Southwell (2m4f, good); this handicap hurdle debut demands more but he is heading the right way and looks a leading contender.

Has not progressed since last June's quite impressive 2m4f course maiden win (good ground) and was no match for winner when remote second over C&D (heavy) this month, but today's less testing ground ought to suit him better and he's on a good mark now.
