6-6 over hurdles/fences for Iain Jardine this season, with most notable success coming from a long way off the pace in Summer Plate at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); also very well suited by this track and Harry Cobden (aboard the last twice) keeps the ride for today's first start back with Claire O'Connell

Made it four wins for the season (all on good but has run well on soft) when comfortably beating solid yardstick at Worcester (2m7f) last August; not at that level since and extremely fortunate to win at Hereford last month, after a break, but it was over an inadequate 2m and there was encouragement in that run; Peter Bowen and Sean Bowen won this with 40-1 shot Henllan Harri in 2017 who, like this fellow, was tackling his longest trip yet; one to note.

Conditions will be borderline as he's ideally suited by good/faster ground; two wins at about 2m4f last summer took his strike-rate over fences to 7-11 but a combination of a career-high mark and good to soft ground contributed to his defeat in the Old Roan at Aintree when last seen in October (under Joe Anderson); others would appear to have more going for them.
