Scored five times over hurdles last year; hasn't fared badly since returning to the Flat (turf/AW) but the bare form suggests he'll come up short in this competitive field, back up in grade.

Generally very disappointing since winning Worcester maiden (2m, good) by 14l a year ago but positives can be drawn from his sixth in first-time cheekpieces there last month and he's too well handicapped to rule out.

Ran well to a point here (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) last month, after a break, and may not have been suited by the slower ground when well beaten at Market Rasen (first-time blinkers) three weeks later, but today's drop back in trip may not be ideal and others here have less to prove.
