Last summer's hat-trick (2m-2m4f) came on good ground and he was tailed off on his return from a break at Huntingdon when conditions were soft; opposable on this ground.

Two satisfactory attempts after nearly a year off and gained her reward with a narrow success at Market Rasen last month; this will probably take a bit more winning but she may well still be open to improvement; up 3lb.

Unimproved for the application of cheekpieces (retained) when last seen in July, albeit refusing to settle; current mark looks good next to his peak efforts of 2021-22, including at this sort of trip, and smattering of chase winners in pedigree offers hope ahead of this switch to fences.
