Has some useful Irish Flat form on his CV and is 2-6 over hurdles since joining Dan Skelton, the latter win gained in C&D handicap ten weeks ago (made all); seemed to enjoy the run of the race that day but could still have a biggger performance in him.

Form & Verdict

All wins between June and August and he has figures of 312 returning from over six months out, so won't necessarily need the run (has had wind surgery since last outing last October); trying to cash in on lower hurdles mark makes sense, and he's 3-7 under Luca Morgan.

Last month's Uttoxeter win came in much weaker company but was notable in that he didn't pull as much as he often has and he also found more under pressure than has sometimes been the case; this will be a sterner test and he'll need to jump better while this trip is unknown territory.
