Both chasing starts have come over C&D; runner-up on debut in May and won by 13l in the second (in first-time cheekpieces); ridden out to the finish in that and 8lb higher but still obvious candidate for the shortlist.

Mopped up several of these events from 2m4f-3m1f in the spring and autumn of last year, all on good or good to soft; genuine soft ground probably against him at Cheltenham in November when last seen; drops back further in trip and may still have more to come.

Very progressive 6yo who is 4-4 since fitted with cheekpieces, the latest win gained under Jack Andrews in 19-runner handicap over C&D (good) three weeks ago with two of today's rivals on his heels; unraced on ground slower than good to soft but otherwise his claims are very solid.
