Has been in rude health since May, winning twice over hurdles and then twice over fences, the latest by 14l here (2m5f, soft) on his return from five months off seven days ago; a major player again in his current mood.

A five-timer last year included three hurdles and two chases; won again in this discipline at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in January before finishing alone in a match; can make mistakes (as was the case when below par last time) but there's no knocking his strike-rate.

Ended a losing run of three years when making all for a wide-margin win at Bangor this month (2m, soft); back up 6lb but he was runnning in stronger races than this not so long ago and is a triple course winner; no easy lead this time but bold bid likely.

Form & Verdict

Two of his three wins over hurdles have come here (2m1f, soft), the latest a narrow success in a conditional jockeys' event seven days ago (making it 3-3 under Jack Hogan); escapes a penalty for that (due a 5lb rise), but his stamina for this far remains unproven.
