Capable dual-purpose performer who bounced back from disappointing efforts under both codes to finish runner-up in a 2m handicap at Beverley 13 days ago (good to firm; blinkers returned); this race is a whole lot tougher; should at least stay the distance.

A fair 1m4f winner in 2021 for Charlie Fellowes but he's offered little for his current yard in five starts over hurdles subsequently; lots to prove returned to this sphere now.
