0-17 under all codes but hasn't been with Ella Pickard long and has finished second in three recent chases; lost out only narrowly to improved rival over C&D (good to soft; front pair well clear) 11 days ago and gets another chance off the same mark; obvious contender.

Won twice over hurdles in the spring (2m6f/3m2f) and ran game race in defeat over fences here (3m1f, good) ten days ago but some of today's rivals have more potential and this drop back in trip may not be ideal; cheekpieces refitted.

Winning hurdler who has finished runner-up in both chase runs and might have won at Southwell last time (2m4f, good) but for a late mistake; the cheekpieces tried there appeared to work; soft ground would temper enthusiasm.

Opened hurdling account with hard-fought success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in July, after a break, and made good start to chasing career when second at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month; can pose a threat if the addition of cheekpieces has any positive effect.

Seemingly better for a tongue-tie when winning his first two chases (3m, good; 3m2f, good to soft), the latter quite hard fought by 1l; his disappointing run at Newton Abbot probably came too soon only a week later and he remains on a workable mark.

Tongue tied and sent chasing over 3m+ for last four starts, winning at Bangor and Fontwell on first two occasions but tailed off next time and pulled up five months later; made a respiratory noise on that latest start and had wind surgery soon afterwards; each-way contender if back on song.
