Made all in Ffos Las maiden hurdle (2m6f, good to soft) in February but both subsequent handicap runs were underwhelming; chasing debut comes after a 175-day layoff but he's with a top stable and has potential.

Sent chasing for this second campaign under rules and it's gone well, notably at Aintree (3m1f, soft; unraced on heavy) on Boxing Day for his second chase win; that was smooth, asserting well from two out, and he got going much too late when creditable second on good ground at Doncaster (3m) three weeks ago, so this greater test of stamina makes serious appeal for him.

Made smooth headway before asserting at Aintree (3m1f, soft) on Boxing Day and is now 2-4 over fences; still has something to prove on good ground but is probably still on the upgrade; good chance.

Chasing this term, comfortably taking a five-runner handicap at Southwell (3m, good to soft) on first attempt; not discredited next time and good second to No But I Will at Wetherby (3m, soft) latest, so he's firmly in the mix.

Signed off for Nicky Henderson with two 2m4f chase wins this summer and completed his hat-trick with wide-margin success here (3m2f, good) on last month's stable debut; another 11lb higher now but will take some catching if in similar mood again.

Completed a hat-trick with win at Southwell (3m2f, good) in September on debut for this yard; good second there (3m, good to soft) next time; pulled up at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) 19 days ago but that was an attritional race and it will be no surprise if he bounces back in these calmer waters.

Form & Verdict

2-3 over fences when fitted with cheekpieces in the spring, the latter win gained at Hexham (3m, good); subsequent four-month break may have checked his momentum but he remains very well handicapped on older hurdle form.

Won twice over fences last year (on good and soft) but below best when last seen in February; has run well over C&D and claims if first-time visor (replaces cheekpieces) perks him up.

Dual 2m hurdle winner this year; beaten in three small-field chases in between but ran well on two occasions; seemed to stay 2m5f (over hurdles) two starts ago; not out of this if suited by the step up to 3m.

Just 1-10 over hurdles but looked suited by switch to fences when keeping on stoutly to win by 9l at Fontwell (2m5f, good) in August; 9lb rise demands more from him but the longer trip will suit.
