Flat bred but jumped fine bar one early blemish on this month's Hereford chasing debut, just finding the near-2m5f too far; drop in trip and from 0-120 both rate positives; yard had a winner here last week.

Running well on the Flat before his successful return to hurdles at Bangor (2m, good), winning the handicap for a second time; only 2lb higher than for that narrow verdict and evidently in decent nick at the minute.

Good-ground bumper winner who was runner-up in a Ffos Las maiden (2m, good) in May but he's not gone on from that in two runs since; ran respectably in a Ffos Las handicap (fourth of ten) in August but he needs more back from a short break and this return to soft ground is a concern.
