Did very well in handicap hurdles in the first half of the season, winning three and runner-up twice at up to 3m on good/good to soft; also has form on heavy and he's a contender back from a five-month break with a first-time tongue-tie added to his cheekpieces.

In good form in first few months of last season, most notably when dead-heating off 2lb lower at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good), but failed to build upon encouraging reappearance run when well-held fourth at Aintree (3m, good) last month; needs to find extra here.
