Mixed form since winning at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) in November on second chase start but he was a good second at Wincanton (3m1f, heavy) last time and that form was franked by the winner; capable of a bold show.

Jumped well and made all at Plumpton (near 2m4f, good to soft) in November on second start over fences; right out of form on next outings but there was a partial recovery when these cheekpieces were enlisted at Wincanton (15l second) latest, so he's considered in this weak race.

Off the mark over hurdles with clearcut success at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) in May; no match for easy winner when second of four on last month's chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good) but positives can be drawn from that performance and he's 3lb lower now.
