Two wins from his last four starts over hurdles, both over staying trips; found 2m4f too short at Cork last time; 1-18 chase record is off-putting but his 11lb lower chase mark give him a definite chance.

Has enjoyed a massive upturn in form after two very poor runs, including over C&D in May; two wins from his last three starts, both over staying trips, second in between; drop in trip is a possible negative.

Remarkably well-backed and duly improved when second in Tramore maiden chase in April; seemingly better than this mark so but risky on return/handicap debut.

Tailed off over hurdles on New Year's Day last time out but chasing is his game and he stormed home from miles back for 6l fifth of 16 here (3m1f, soft) in November on his latest run over fences, with his jockey receiving a 20-day ban for failing to obtain the best possible placing; this unexposed 7yo is very interesting despite today's 8lb higher mark.
