Generally very disappointing in recent years but stayed on well to open hurdling account off lowly mark at Fakenham (2m7f, good) five weeks ago, and a 4lb rise is manageable if he's turned over a new leaf.

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.
