Winning hurdler who has finished runner-up in both chase runs and might have won at Southwell last time (2m4f, good) but for a late mistake; the cheekpieces tried there appeared to work; soft ground would temper enthusiasm.

Opened hurdling account with hard-fought success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July, after a break, and made good start to chasing career when second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month; can pose a threat if the addition of cheekpieces has any positive effect.
