Winning hurdler/chaser who landed his first Flat success at the 14th attempt at Kempton (1m3f, Polytrack) last month; a staying-on fourth of 11 over C&D 13 days later and holds each-way claims from the same mark.

Productive over hurdles and fences last year, and has seemingly returned to the Flat in fine fettle; comfortably got the better of the reopposing Eaux De Vie at Kempton (1m3f, Class 6, 14-1) a fortnight ago, so could confirm that superiority on 3lb worse terms.

Back-to-back wins over fences last summer and made the frame in amateur riders' race on his return to the Flat last month (just behind Global Tycoon; 40-1); could strip fitter today and be more heavily involved; cheekpieces return to accompany tongue-tie.

Some respectable efforts at around 2m this autumn but he took his losing run to 23 when well held at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) 20 days ago; bit to prove again after that and he goes into unknown territory at this trip.
